“Well priced and great location”
Reviewed 22 March 2010

Spent 2 days here for a concert weekend. great location, 10 min walk to willis st for shopping/courtnay place for bars and nightlife. we were in room 2 (i think) furniture was dated yet functional, 2 huge rooms and lounge/kitchen area + a huge deck off the lounge. street noise (cars, people, council workers) was noticable but not overly distracting. hot water ran out, i think the tank is shared between the units. bedding was good, very comfy.

We stayed at 140 Flagstaff (a 2 bedroom apartment) with friends for over a week. We would not recommend it unless location and budget are your top criteria for accomodation.

Pros:
- Excellent location. It's right in the middle of the CBD with easy access to Te Papa, restaurants, a great supermarket, bars, etc.
- Size. It's on two levels and is very large. Both bedrooms and baths are on the first level and the dining, kitchen and living areas on the second.
- Parking is available nearby for a fee.

Cons:
- The unit feels old and shabby. It's decorated with cast off furniture and has floor-to-ceiling light wood doors, metal sinks and shower stall floors, old carpeting. There's also a strange smell in the unit.
- The master bedroom is located on the lower level right overlooking a busy street (Willis) and we heard traffic day and night, including city workers running something like leaf blowers for 20-30 minutes between 11pm and 1am each night. The 2nd bedroom looks out on a garage and dumpster area. Garbage trucks come by several times a week around 2am or 3am. Also, each time someone enters or leaves the garage, we could hear the door opening/closing (4x); this happened day and night.
-The entrance is from the back of the unit, which is in an alley/parking area filled with dumpsters.
- There is no wireless access, only dial up (we managed to get a very weak surf net signal - $49 per week).
- There is no DVD player, only a VHS.
