Positive Reviews

Cosmopolitan dining

From breakfast to dinner, guests enjoy the dishes at the on-site Cosmopolitan Restaurant. In addition to great food, guests find the venue itself very pleasant. The breakfast is the most recommended. Guests also like the convenience of having dining options on site.

Contemporary comfort

Overall, guests are quite happy with the apartments and find the amenities provided well-thought-out. Many travellers like to save money on dining, so having a kitchen is a plus for them. Guests also appreciate the addition of other modern items such as a large TV and washing machine. The quality of the appliances impresses many guests.

Great location

Guests consider this complex well situated for access to the city and the Gateway. According to reviews, the hotel is close enough to walk to the centre. However, guests also appreciate that it is far enough to escape the crowds that tend to overwhelm the area.

Negative Reviews

Not-so-well-done wellness facilities

Guests have a lot of negative comments about the hotel's wellness facilities. Many do not like that the pool is not heated, and because it is indoors, guests complain that there is no sun to provide warmth. Others also dislike the fitness room, finding the equipment outdated and in need of maintenance.

Thin walls

Soundproofing is not the best between apartments, judging from the many guests complaining about their noisy neighbours. In addition to the thin walls, guests add that the rooms facing the road can be prone to traffic noise.

Lack of privacy

Guests sharing the apartments with others dislike that the shower is located inside the room, with no wall to provide any privacy. Many guests find this set up awkward, even for close couples.
