8/10 Very good

worth it for a family
apartment is very good and i enjoyed my stay overthere. Would put 2 problems to this property, no reception, took me 45 mins to find someone who told me to go to the apartments next door and get my key. Second problem, cleaning after the first night was bad, apart from that, great place to stay

2/10 Poor

Very old and tired property. Shouldn't be classified as an apartment. It's completely not the same as per advertised. The front desk person completely not concern about my complain regarding the apartment. Completely dishonest for the whole thing. Rooms can't be lock. Some handles completely pull out. Rooms smelly. Construction happening next door and downstairs. It's totally unsafe for residents. Will never booked with Expedia again or stay at this awful place again.
