I'd like to share our experience about this apartment during our recent trip to Sydney.
We were there in early April to attend a family wedding and we decided to extend it into a short family vacation. In our search for a suitable apartment to accommodate my family, we found that the rates in Sydney is rather exorbitant. We then found this apartment and having read the various reviews, we decided to give it a shot.
The experience that we had during our week long stay in Sydney was a pleasant one and we're very satisfied with our accommodation. If you grasp the concept of "what you pay is what you get" you'll definitely be pleased with what this place has to offer.
The rates that we paid was one of the lowest that we could get and given that, we had more than we bargained for. Our 2 bedroom apartment was just right for the kids and us and it comes with a a fully equipped kitchenette. It can be quite costly if you're going to dine in the cafes or restaurants for all 3 daily meals for a week. It certainly helped that there's a supermarket about 2 blocks away. There's a convenient store even nearby if you're too bum to walk to the supermarket.
It didn't bother me at all with the fact that I had to bring the trash down to the bin located at the basement carpark. It's simply a ride in the lift which is about 3 steps away from your door.
We simply love it's location. It's just stone's throw away from the Darling Harbour. Paddy's market is just a monorail ride away and it also takes you to the main street as well. You're virtually within reach of all networks that brings you around Sydney.
Other than some minor language issues with one of the staff, which I think is still at a acceptable level, I only have good comments to make of thiss apartment.
Both my wife and I are from the hospitality industry and in our humble opinions, this place serves our purpose very well and helped us make the trip a very pleasant one. You can't expect 5 star service when you're not actually paying 5 star prices. Sometimes, you have to manage your expectations with your affordability. Credit is given when credit is deserved.
I'll be happy to take any questions that any future visitors might have about this apartment.
