Be very careful if you book the apartments here, as there is another place called the Carlton Suites, which look much better on the internet than these apartments. The description says that many apartments have a dishwasher, and most photos show an oven and nice furniture. Ours had no oven no dishwasher, no microwave, no toaster, nothing like washing up liquid, and no draining board. We had already read some reviews after booking, and took our own plastic chopping board, peeler, serated knife, tea, coffee and sugar. Unlike any other apartment we have.ever stayed in, there was nothing for us at all. No welcome tea bags, or anything. Not even a bottle of water. The toilet seat was completely broken in the toilet, although they did get it repaired after 2 complaints. The beds were like boards, very flat pillows, so we put towels under them to make them useable. Wardrobes rammed up to the bed, so no bedside cabinets, and nothing to put a cup of coffee on. Frayed blackout blinds, printed red carpet, with old blue printed curtains. Very thin duvets - wouldn't like to be there in the winter. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, and breakfast was adequate, although again, the room used for breakfast was stark and plain. To say that the hotel has a garden, is a joke. it's a coutyard with a few pots. While we were there, lumps fell off of the building, and the fire department erected a wood barrier and a cover over the entrance in case more fell off.
Reminded me of the old Communist country hotels before liberation. The only thing going for it was that it was all very clean.
