Unit was very clean and service was very polite and friendly. I found the bed firm and comfortable. There is traffic noise throughout the night, which doesn't bother me, but earplugs were provided. The air con was great in hot weather. Two bedroom apartment has two hobs and a microwave in the kitchen, no oven. Bathroom cramped but usable. I was happy with the unit and would definitely stay there again.
