This apartment is definitely not your holiday choice.
We arrived on the 20th of Feb and stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The first impression was bad. The hotel sits on the corner of two very busy streets. There was no temporary street parking for us to drop luggage. Only one staff was working in the front desk and I have to wait for around 10mins to ask him where to park the car.
On the minute I opened the door of our apartment, I knew I had chose the wrong place. Two of the three light bulbs in the kitchen area were broken. The balcony ground was very dirty, with milk stain uncleaned.
In the evening when I was having shower, I discovered there is no shower gel in the box. I had to get out of the shower to call front office - and then I found out there was no way I could call front office using the phone in the living room. I had to call them by my mobile phone.
The staff came in to fix the light and refill the shower gel after we report the problems. But we were disappointed to stayed in such a unprepared and short staffed 4-star accommodation.
And there is no laundry in the apartment. In addition, you have to close the door really hard, otherwise people from outside could easily push it open.
Some good aspects: convenient location; easy access to city, harbor, good restaurants.
To conclude, we will not choose Waldorf again or recommend it to friends.
