Quite disappointed
Although the room was nice we felt we were in a hole The balcony was just a couple of feet from a cement wall We could not see out at all We booked for 4 nights so we should have complained but didn't Any service like phoning for a taxi or printing out a boarding pass required a fee The bed was 2 singles put together which gave a hard centre line

perfectly ok
Good, close to a major shopping centre and train as well as buses. 20 minutes walk to the harbor.

Front desk service was excellent. They'd also make tour reservations for you, too. Office area provided postcards, tour information, beverages, ice cream, and other useful items. Only drawback was that my apartment was relatively small with poor storage capability for clothing and other items so you'd better plan to live out of your suitcase. While they say apartments are NOT serviced, many are, in fact, serviced (I saw about eight maids). Apartment was clean. Excellent location near train station and a major shopping center only a 5 minute walk away. My apartment had air-conditioning; needed for a November stay not so much for the temperature but the high humidity. Would I stay there again, YES......if the price remained right. The Esplanade and other key locations were within about a five block radius . Quite convenient. Free WiFi worked well.

I have stayed here on numerous occasions but the apartment I stayed in this time backed onto the Officeworks delivery dock which was very noisy
