I recently stayed in one of the two bedroom apartments on York Road with some friends. The apartment was really well decorated and maintained, and it was a lovely space to call home for the weekend.
The apartment was well located, and had everything that you could wish for - a comfortable bed, great shower, fridge etc.
However, there were a few problems - the main one being the soundproofing. My friends and I returned back to the apartment around midnight, and we retired to bed shortly after. We were all kept awake until 2.30am-3am by people coming in and out of the other apartments, running up and down the stairs and generally making noise from their apartments.
I appreciate that the owners can do little about how noisy these people were being, but if the soundproofing was improved it would sound less like these people were actually in our apartment and the noise would be a faint murmur, rather than us being able to hear everything word for word.
The only other issue for us was that we couldn't get the cooker to work, no matter how hard we tried. I'm not sure if it was broken or if we just couldn't figure it out - a minor issue for us, as we ended up going out for breakfast instead.
Overall, great apartments in a fantastic location but don't hold out for a sound night's sleep - we definitely didn't feel rested after our stay!
