"style and location for reasonable rates is a winning one"
These apartments have been spoken of highly by previous guests, who have been impressed by the spaciousness of the units and the quality of the fittings and services. All the units appear to be of a high standard, but the second floor has higher ceilings than others, so may be the best on which to stay. The combination of style and location for reasonable rates is a winning one and when your stay comes to an end you may be tempted to take on a very large mortgage just to repeat the experience!
