Negative Reviews

Beware of additional fees

Guests have reported incidences where they confirmed their booking and paid a set fee, only to then have the proprietor attempt to increase the fee upon their arrival at the property. One example given, was that the proprietor attempted to charge extra for children staying at the property.

Overpriced, basic accommodation

Different sized properties are offered and guests found some of the properties to be small and cramped. Guests also commented that while the furnishings are modern, they are also basic and overall the rental was not good value for money.

Serviced apartments not always serviced

The housekeeping service provided is not always reliable. Guests complained that property had not been cleaned prior to their arrival and that not all the beds had been made-up.
