We booked this one bedroom, one alcove apartment via Airbnb for eight nights.
The check-in time is very limiting (5pm only otherwise we had to pay extra) and the check-in process is a bit of a hassle as it is at a different location to the apartment. Only a few blocks away but if we didn’t have our own car it would be an even bigger hassle.
Secure underground parking and the apartment itself is nice with some natural light. There is a large balcony off the sitting area and master bedroom but a large construction site is just across the road. When we were there it was only operating during the weekdays starting around 6.30-7am and not creating huge amounts of noise but this looks to be the beginnings of another large building.
Bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and walk-in wardrobe space. The alcove/den is a small space with just a queen bed and is separated by some light curtains hung in the doorway. Bathroom is compact with shower over the bath, toilet and large vanity. Linens and towels provided and were of a high standard.Kitchen had a large refrigerator/freezer, microwave, oven, kettle, toaster and coffee maker (‘$1 per coffee’ was marked on the machine). A reasonable amount of cutlery, crockery, glassware and pots but a few more dishes to use in the oven and microwave would be good. Washing machine and dryer available inside the apartment. Wi-Fi was good and great ducted heating.The fitness centre in the building was great and the location is fantastic. Lots of amenities close by. Think we got a bit of a bargain with this apartment, probably due to the construction site but it didn’t have any effect on our stay at all, so win, win.
