          Apartment is very tried. Needed painting, light globes not working, taps loose, Not particularly clean. Dust and cobwebs. For your money you can do better. Need to pay for parking and Internet. Look somewhere else.

          We stayed in an executive room over the past weekend. Hotel is in great location with no traffic noise. Clean rooms with great bed and quality linen. Easy parking underneath. Lifts make rooms on higher levels easily accessible.

          Cobwebs in the kitchen, holes in ceiling, iron burns in carpet, not been updated since the 80's and generally not clean. We won't stay at this overpriced place again and suggest others look elsewhere.

          If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
          over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
          place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
          the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
          started their day with a local espresso. They are
          gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
          Little Italy which has something for everyone.
