We stayed for a long weekend in the 2 bedroom unrenovated apartment. Easy to book & no deposit required. The room was as described and very clean. Centrally located. Wifi was intermittent.Thank you, I would stay again.

Thank you for your review. The apartment, although unrenovated, does offer more space and laundry and kitchen facilities. With the larger fridge and cooking facilities it is popular with families staying for extended periods. We hope to see you again. Regards, Steve & Marilyn
