Found our stay to be enjoyable overrall. The Aqueous has two main claims to fame. One-location, just around the corner is the main street. Two-swim out pool from the ground floor rooms. We found this to be the best feature of the hotel.
There are zero bar/dining facitlities which was not an issue for us as we were happy to explore Macrossan street each night. Anyone with children or someone looking for the in house option had best book an apartment.
There is no 24 hr reception here. You are issued with a number to key in for entry after hours. Its easy to forget the first day, as we did. One would think it would have some correlation to your room number but its an obscure totally related number specifically designed for you not to remember easily- annoying.
Only real criticisms are that the carpet and paintwork was looking a little tired for an establishment which otherwise didnt seem that old .
Additonally there is a shared entrance area off of the main corridor which is tiled and acts an amplification chamber for noise coming from the adjacent room. If you are looking for a sleep in, and not that we were, then you can rule that out.
As a general comment I'd allocated this place about a 7/10 and most likely would stay again in the future.
