Negative Reviews


Can be difficult to find staff

Despite some of the facilities on offer making this complex resemble a hotel, it's prudent to mention that the service doesn't match up. The staff is generally helpful and friendly, but guests note that they're not always that easy to find.


Disappointing air-conditioning

Guests mention that the air-conditioning in the apartments is a little disappointing. In some of the apartments, at least, air-conditioning is only available in the lounge. Plus, guests find the units are fairly inefficient.


Extra costs make a stay pricey

These apartments don't exactly come cheap. That said, the majority of guests are happy enough with the price. What doesn't go down too well is the extra costs charged for parking and Wi-Fi. Guests tend to be of the opinion that these essential amenities should be included in the apartment cost.
