5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I stayed in a duplex apartment - downstairs a small kitchen, shower room & sitting area, and upstairs a comfortable bed, plus a small outside balcony. Good shower, but it was in a very tight space. Quiet & efficient aircon. Friendly welcome from the owner.

Everything I could need was there, including a park. Staff were very kind and helpful. The room was a decent size for a studio and the bed very comfortable.
