I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The location is great. The views (!!!) are amazing. The staff has been extremely helpful, with getting Covid tests, airport transfers, they even upgraded our room without us asking upon arrival. The room was spacious with a nice balcony, kitchen, and laundry machine. The pool views are great and we enjoyed coffees and pastries from the Chocolate Bar downstairs. Would recommend to all of my family and friends! (Ps - comfy bed!!).

There are no luggage trolleys, which make it very difficult to take luggage up to your apartment. The concierges are very helpful and the security personal are polite and helpful too.

Our apartment was very nice. Clean, bright and comfortable. The views arw amazing,ing from the balcony.

We were very disappointed as our main reason for choosing Sky Nest was their facilities.

Their pool has been out of commission for over a week, and we never recieved any solid information as to when it would be repaired.

We could not make full use of the gym either. Their tread mills are not running smoothly, they are jerky and dangerous.

The convenience shop on the ground floor is extremely useful. They sell everyday basics from water, soap, shampoo, condiments, wines and spirits and more.

The restaurant, Slate, is okay. We did mot enjoy our dishes. The staff are very professional, courteous and friendly.

The management truly needs to be on top of everything, to make sure that everything is in top working condition. It has been very disappointing in that respect.

Great apartment but it is missing some proper couches to relax on. Could also do with hangers to hang up your clothes. Staff all super friendly and helpful. Apartment very clean, basically brand new. Can hear some noise from local nightclubs but not so bad because we were on the 12th floor. Also missing glasses to drink with.

Very cold, incompetent unpleasant front desk - Sunday night 10/7/22.
After securing a booking through one of the platfroms, i get to the venue late & tired. I show the rude lady at the reception my booking confirmation where she insists they dont have an apartment by that title. Understably, i tell her if it is false it shouldnt be online & linked to their website. She dismisses me saying that is not even her job and she has nothing else to tell me, and my complaint is no the 1st one. So why hasnt management do anything about it? why put such a nasty attitude person at your guests first point of contact? Do better. Never got to book never will

Hi Ivyiw, We apologize for any inconvenience and frustration caused during your check-in process. In reference to this, we would also like to note that your booking for that particular day was for an apartment in another section of the building and one that does not belong to Skynest Residences by CityBlue. As such, CityBlue Hotels is dedicated to providing the best possible guest experience and pride ourselves on the recorded satisfaction of many of our previous customers as can be seen in preceding reviews.

The apartment was excellent, clean and spacious with a good shop and great restaurant in the lobby. Unfortunately there is very very loud music outside until 5am at the weekend and 230am on sunday night, sleep is unlikely. Recommended only if you’re clubbing yourself

Very lovely stay.
Rooms were very clean.
We had an amazing balcony which had a great view of the city skyline.
We stayed at this Hotel twice!
Also I would definitely recommend grabbing a mocha from the small cafe/coffee shop near reception.
I would try and get a room on a higher floor as of course that = better view. Although saying this I still enjoyed the view from the sixth floor also!

Its a good choice. Almost all pro, very little con.
So .... very high security, central location in Westland. Efficient and helpful front desk, 24 hours a day.
Apartments are well maintained, very clean hotel. A good mix of expats and tourists of all ages. Pool is ok fir a dip in a hot day , at the rooftop. nice hangout.
Its convenient to have a continent store in the building. Not cheap but if you are lazy to walk 5 MN to find whatever you need, then it's OK for a ew items.
very good coffee shop on prem.
the con ... 2 points. Breakfast. this delivery box Breakfast is not that good. not in content and not in outcome. You will quickly find alternatives outside. but it should have been done better.
Cleaning team. The outcome is good, but if you are actually staying in the apartment during the day ... it's annoying. they take long, they disappear in the middle, come back to continue 2 hours after, then disappear again and surprise you later when they return to finish off. never on constant time.
But the whole place is well maintained.
Would I stay there again ? mmm... probably not. Mainly because I think I expect more for the price.

The location is very central and convenient albeit a bit noisy especially during weekends. All services are par excellence but City Blue needs to cater for a luggage trolley/ cart to transport baggage that cannot roll on its own wheels.
