Small apartment, great location

This is our 2nd stay after checking out for an overnight tour. Although we booked a superior studio, the same as the last time, we were given a much smaller room. Bathroom was tiny. The kettle leaked but was replaced when housekeeping was notified. We stayed for 3 nights n were given a change of towels after 2 nights. Wished housekeeping could have knocked first before opening the room door.

Large room

The superior studio room was large n accomodates 3 adults comfortably. Location is just off shopping street so it is convenient n yet away from party noise. Staff very responsive to request. Although not manned, instructions are clear n help is just a phone call away. Free use of phone for local calls n computer available for use at reception. Wifi reception is reasonable.

Hotel not welcoming

This has to be the worst hotel which is associated with the this booking website and certainly the worst in my experience. The staff were appalling and less than helpful when the rooms were unsuitable for guests who could not negotiate stairs and no lift was present. The unsympathetic attitude of the clerk and his unwillingness to help or cancel the booking, was a blight on our holiday. We swapped to another hotel and the staff assistance and understanding were exemplary. The booking site should not be associated with the Welcome apartments because they are anything but!

Good for a short stay

The hotel is wonderfully located for people enjoying a short stay. I was here on a 24hour stopover and it was perfect for me. Room is small, but it was all I needed. Position well very close to the main station that runs you into/from the airport. It was clean, the staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was plentiful even in the busy period. All and all, I'd recommend it for a short stay for the convenience, location and the staff.

Convenient location, but not the best room

The rooms are not at all as described, shabby at best would be an appropriate description. The bathroom wasn't very clean, and the kitchen was basic, with not even any sachets of coffee or tea provided. I wasn't impressed to arrive at 3am and couldn't even have a hot drink! The location was good, very close to everything and in a quiet street. The door code and key box system works well, but the lack of reception was frustrating when you needed information. Its worth noting that a double bed is two singles pushed together with two single duvets.

A few days stay

I had a good experience staying in this hotel. Clean and spacious rooms, no annoying hotel staff (this is a self check-in hotel). Perfect location - just a few mins from city center. Would come back again.
