“Basic but good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

Positives: Fantastic location, close to public transport, restaurants, pubs, and CBD, good basic amenities and services, secure.
Negatives: Only 2 hour parking, between 8.00 am and 10 pm, if you can find a park, we had to drive into town and pay for parking :(

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

We stayed 5 nights and were initially disappointed in the apartment but quickly saw the positives. Although the amenities and service are pretty basic, the location is really good. The very busy street noise outside kept us awake some nights, not helped by a locked door with large gaps around it on Foveaux St side (usual in an old building) and only blinds over windows so at times it felt there were people right in the room. "Serviced" entailed clean towels daily only, although a brochure does explain only a weekly linen change is offered, usually "serviced" means bed made, kitchen and bathroom cleaned during a longer stay? No internal doors except on bathroom so TV and any other noise carries. Blinds shut out some light, but if you need a dark, quiet place to sleep this is not it. If you are looking for something affordable and secure in a very handy location this is good, but don't expect too much!

Travellers with large luggage were struggling to get up the tight external spiral stairs and some were confused about how to contact the owners on arrival (there's a phone number outside on the street). Expect to wait on the street until someone arrives to hand over the key.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor on Foveaux St

Good Points

What to watch for
>Traffic noise from Fouveax St - bedrooms next to busy street.
