I could not fault this property...the room may have been a little small, but was laid out perfectly, everything was sparkling clean and presented well and the location was very close to everything. Very impressed.

Staff were not competent. I would not stay again due to safety concerns. When the fire alarm was activated they failed to call the fire service until we suggested they do so. They hadn’t checked on the evacuation of our apartment until I approached them. For an entire night The external door could not be closed or locked. Staff responses were weak and insincere.

The apartment was extremely compact and had everything I needed. Having a TV at the end of the bed was great. Make sure you check that your bedroom window is closed overnight as mine was left open (covered by curtains) and there was a lot of noise outside during the night.
