Positive Reviews

Spacious and well-appointed apartments.

The apartments were spacious, well laid-out, and nicely-equipped according to reviews. Guests stated that the convenient laundry facilities and well-appointed kitchens were great for longer stays and that the beds were very comfortable.

Central location close to many attractions.

The apartment building is situated in the heart of Newcastle West, making it an ideal base for travellers who want to explore the area. People noted that the neighbourhood is easily walkable and that the apartments are close to local shops, bars, restaurants, and public transportation lines.

Nice ground-floor bar and lounge.

Many visitors greatly enjoyed the bar and lounge located downstairs. Guests reported that the place offers good food, drinks, and music in a nice atmosphere and for a reasonable cost.

Negative Reviews

Noisy area on a busy road.

Owing to the building's location on a busy road, noise from traffic can be a persistent issue. Guests reported that patrons of the local bars and adjacent hotel can create disturbances into the night as well. Light sleepers are recommended to request an apartment away from the road if possible.

Lack of on-site staff and service.

As the establishment is not a traditional hotel, it lacks an on-site reception area or full-time staff. Visitors complained of a complicated check-in process requiring off-site key pickup a distance from the apartments, adding that the staff was often rude or disinterested in helping when contacted via phone.

Some comfort issues in the rooms.

Although the apartments were said to be clean and spacious, travellers did report a few problems that needed addressing. Issues included a lack of hot water, cramped showers, and rooms being under-stocked with basic necessities like soap.
