I checked into a studio apartment for 12 nights stay with some friends who had the 2 bedroom apartment.The check in was quite efficient as we arrived early and the check in time was 2pm and my friend 's room was ready.I went into my friend's apartment whilst I waited for my room to be ready.I did not have to wait too long and the reception called to say my room was ready.A polite man came up with the keys and help me with my luggage to my studio apartment,
The studio was of decent size with a double bed,small kitchenette,washing machine with dryer and a small bathroom without bath except a shower with slow running water(something about saving water,eco-friendly) so if you have long hair forget about washing your hair in the shower, it will take ages! go to a nearby hair salon!
I found it rather strange that the more nights you stay in this apartment the less service you get! In most hotels the more nights you booked they give you more service.I have to be fair about the comments re the cleaning services, when i booked direct to the Apartment they did say cleaning only on the 7th day after you check in,luckily I am quite a tidy person.
I enquired on the 3rd dayif they would clean my room, and i was spoken to by a very rude (Chinese) girl, without a name badge, behind the reception saying in a very rude tone that I had not read the contract which I had signed which stated that the room would only be cleaned on the 7th day.! This girl should not be working in the front office with such bad PR.
If I have known I would not have taken the studio as I could stay in the Grace hotel nearby for about the same price and with breakfast, and with room cleaning every day.
Special mention must be given to the duty manager Henry who was very polite and knowlegable about Sydney. Do seek him out if you need any help.
The corridors to your apartment are quite narrow and dingy. Sound proofing of the doors is quite bad as you can hear the sound quite clearly when someone open and close their doors.By the way the airconditioning has been programmed to switch off automaticaly after 4 hours, so in the middle of the night you will wake up sweating. So you have to get out of your bed to switch on the aircon again if you want to be cool .
The whole place looks rather run down and tired ! Definately would not stay in this apartment again.
You can get better value for money elsewhere!
