It was a real pain when we arrived as I didn't know the pin to the card I had booked it on. So had to transfer money around from. Different accounts. We also had to wait ages to get our deposit back

The apartment was clean and modern

The executive 1 bedroom that I stayed in seemed to lack in furniture. There were no shelves or tables to put your things down other than the dining table, which doesn't seem like a big deal but when your laying in bed with your drink or on your phone you've nowhere to put it down when your finished with it, it was quite annoying finding somewhere to put things safely. The bedroom was very small too and the TV signal was very bad on most chanels. I was expecting a little bit more from the apartment considering its an 'upgrade' from the one bedroom deluxe.
