“OK but overpriced for what you get.”

3 star

The Apartment was clean but very dated. There was only the most basic of cooking utensils and the stove/oven was old and not functional with broken buttons. Although the living area is air-conditioned, the bedrooms are not and to keep them cool the doors had to be left open. On the positive side the place is in a great location that will only improve with construction of the cross river rail.
