I use to live in this building when under previous management , had a team of cleaners every day , on site reception / security 24/7 , nothing a problem . A majority of owners decided to "GO" serviced apartments with an unknow company with NO experience in accommodation management . Cost cutting from day #1 ... Turned the place into a filthy dump , complaints went "nowhere". I feel very sorry for the owners / investors that were out numbered in a stacked Owners Corporation Board ... Strata Laws need a change to safe guard all lot owners . Buy at your risk inti Fiori Apartments ... Comments & views tells the story. Barry B
Unfortunately we booked this place without first reading the reviews, which were very very bad. We could not cancel the booking without losing the whole lot, so we braced ourselves with extremely low expectations. First impressions, the car park is an absolute labyrinth. No arrows, no signage. Marked spaces go like 135, 127, 198, 206. No type of order at all. Our room was 21XX which instinctively would tell you it was on the 21st floor, right? No, it was on floor 23. Again, no signage to direct you which way your room was etc. The building is tired, dated and in need of a revamp. The corridors did have a distinctive smell, but we didn't seem to notice once we were in our room. Until I opened the microwave. Overwhelming smell of curry and it was not clean. Shut the door fast! Other than that, the kitchen area was tired but otherwise clean. Same cannot be said for the cooking pots and utensils, which still had food, lipstick or baked on grease. Everything we used had to be washed first. No two pieces of cutlery matched each other. Seemed to be from at least 4 different sets. The fridge was clean. The laundry had exposed wires and what looked to be footprints on the ceiling. There was several loads worth of lint in the dryer and the exhaust fan was absolutely caked with dust. Did I hear you say fire hazard? Oh and speaking of fire safety, there was no sign on the back of the door (which I think is compulsory in all hotels) indicating what to do if there was an emergency and where the exits are etc. The living area of the apartment was very basic. It had recently been painted, but was a super shoddy job. Paint where it shouldn't be, and not there where it should be. TV was small, but it worked, even with the old school rabbit ears aerial. There was a table lamp on the floor. One of the ceiling lights didn't work. Couldn't open the sliding door to get out on to the balcony. Basic, uncomfortable, vinyl sofa. The bathroom was original. Teeny tiny basic toiletries. The shower was an abomination and I really wished I had brought thongs so I didn't have to put my feet directly on the tiles. Mould in the grout and silicone. Grubby shower head with no pressure. At least the water was hot. There was no seal around the door, so when I got out of the shower, the bathroom was basically flooded. All tapware was a bit grubby. The toilet paper was actually not bad quality and housekeeping had gone to the effort of folding that cute triangle. The towels were clean and fluffy. No face washers. The bed linen was spotlessly clean. The rest of to the bedroom was not. The artwork had gotten grubby form what I assume was suitcases or people being dragged past it. The bed was concave and needed replacing. Only 2 thin pillows were provided. There was a prehistoric split system AC, however no remote was ever located. We used an upright heater which had been placed in the room. Smelled for a couple of minutes when it was first turned on, as if it was the first time it had been used this winter. The floor had dark stains from I know not what. One bedside table also looked like it had not been wiped over for some time and had obvious sauce stains on it (possibly the same as the carpet stains). The drawer pulls were almost falling off and the bottom drawer contained a white pages from 2008!!! On this bedside was a small bedside lamp, of which the stand was not attached to the base and the blub blew when I tired to turn it on. The other bedside table had the top corner knocked off and was in no condition to even send to an op shop. The windows had tape all around them. Not sure why. The blinds were damaged, but did work. Due to the lamp being damaged, we opened the bedroom blind slightly to allow some ambient light in. This revealed what I'd say was one of the the best features of the room. The twinkling night lights of the Parramatta area were beautiful. In the light of the morning, however, we saw that the AC unit outside was filthy and half rusted away. There were at least 2 or more cans under the unit as well as dirt and leaves. And there was a busy work site below, which started creating all types of construction noise at 7am. They were working on the foundations, so I daresay this construction will be going on for quite some time. The location was on the wrong side of the tracks. Meaning there was not much choice food wise for about a 15 minute walk, including crossing the railway. There was a convenience store downstairs, but unless you have a spare kidney to sell off, I would make sure you had everything you needed, or take a walk across the railway to a supermarket. The bones of this property are good. It just really really needs some love and attention. If the Hotel just invested about $1500 per room for some much needed repairs and upgrades to bring into this decade, they could easily charge $50 + more per night more and recoup their investment in no time. But until they do, just don't.…
Booked a room for a business trip advertised as a clean tidy apartment in the heart of Parramatta CBD. It was like a crime scene in the ‘hoods’. Blood on the walls and blinds, filth and stains on the furniture and carpet. I couldn’t walk on the carpet or sit up in bed thinking I would get sick. The coffee cups were stained and dirty. You would think I am exaggerating but see the photos and decide if you think this would be a suitable business accommodation location.
We rented a 2 bedroom apartment, the building and flat are not greatly looked after. However, I expected this with reading previous reviews and the price we paid. Beds are comfy and we loved being so close to ´Little India’. Served the purposed we were after.
