- Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
What I liked. Good security, extremely helpful front desk staff. Very spacious one-bedroom with well-appointed kitchen. Good location with easy access to public transportation and other local amenities. I especially liked the Mist coffee bar next door, offering good breakfast and lunch offerings in a quiet environment; the wide array of excellent Thai food nearby; and the close proximity to World Square mall which contains a large Coles (grocery store) and Liquorland. What could be better. Most of the lighting was provided by overhead fixtures, which I found too harsh for everything but the bathroom--more floor and table lamps or otherwise ambient lighting would have been welcome. Building could be better maintained: I had to move twice during my 10-day stay, thanks to (1) malfunctioning air conditioning and (2) clogged pipes. Friends staying at the same time also had to move once due to inadequate air conditioning; the culprit may have been clogged filters, well overdue for replacement. Management was very responsive to problems--no complaints there--but they could possibly have been avoided altogether with better basic maintenance.
