We stayed here for 2 nights from Jul 15 to 17. We were a party of 2 adults and 2 children.
We chose this place based on location and free wifi.
The location was EXCELLENT! We were in Tyn Square and only a few mins from Old Town Square, centre of activity for most tourists. There were lots of restaurants nearby and most attractions were within walking distance.
The wifi was okay. There were 6 different networks we could connect to. We could usually connect to one of them but sometimes you had to walk around the apt for several mins before you could find a signal. Once you were able to connect the wifi worked reasonably well. There was a little sitting room in the hallway just outside the apt where the connection was excellent.
The building is run through the Indian restaurant next door, the Indian Jewel. Everyone at the restaurant was very welcoming and accommodating. You also got 10% off at the restaurant. We ate there one night and really enjoyed our meal. Upon leaving, staff stored our luggage for us and also called a taxi for us.
We were in apt 41 which was up a flight of stairs. There was a little sitting room at the top of the stairs just outside the apt. The apt was much larger than we were expecting with a large entryway, separate kitchen, toilet room w a sink, and bathroom w a sink. There was a large living area and a large bedroom. The furniture was simple but there was a lovely vaulted ceiling in the living area and the windows had nice draperies. There was a crystal chandelier in both the living area and the bedroom.
We only used the kitchen for cold breakfasts and there was a mini-fridge and toaster and plates and cutlery that were adequate for our purposes. I did notice that there was a 2 burner stove and a kettle and several cooking pots and pans. The kitchen was large with a table and 4 chairs.
There was a wall hair dryer that worked okay. The bathroom had a bathtub with a shower head but no shower curtain. The shower head was a handheld shower but only mounted high enough so that you could kneel in order for it to be above you. I was aware of this when we booked the apt (based on other reviews). My husband and I kneeled to wash our hair and then stood up to lather up and used the handheld to rinse off. We tried not to get water on the floor and were moderately successful. Our 8 year old son managed to get water all over the floor.
The living room was large w 2 single beds, a sofa and armchair, a desk, and a TV. There was lots of space to walk around. There was no air conditioning but there was a fan that worked quite well.
The bedroom was also very large with a large bed, 2 night stands, 2 desks, a large cabinet w a safe deposit box, and another cabinet which contained a pullout bed. There was another fan in the bedroom which worked well at keeping us cool.
Many toiletries (shampoo, body gel, lotion) were provided. The room was not serviced and towels were not exchanged during our stay.
Overall we loved the apt and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The location and large clean apt was worth the mild inconvenience of the slightly awkward shower.
