Centralised location in the heart of the city. It is near bus service station and central market and big shopping malls. All within walking distance. Although location is centralised but it is rather quiet so not much noise being heard. The rooms are also clean and tidy. The room also has washer and dryer for us to wash our clothes.

Well located and good value for money. The rooms were also very large which I didn't expect for the price. it is a good place to stay on a regular basis for business. There is plenty of fresh air as the windows opened. the bedroom had borrowed light that was not ideal.

I stayed here for four nights this week. There is a lot which is very good about this place. The apartments are spacious and spotless. The location is excellent yet quiet. There are Peter Morrissey toiletries. Two negatives for me: the bedrooms are next to the hallway which of course is lit all night so light floods in through the...

Great apartments for staying a night or a week. Service was good and everything was clean. Was very quite during the night so sleeping wasn't a problem, easy walking distance to shops and public transport. great little café down stairs that serves delicious food.
