4.7/5Exceptional! (46 reviews)
Information about entry codes went into my junk email so make sure you check this. It felt strange not to have a key or any staff on hand at the property but the number to call was clearly communicated should there be any issues. Arrival time is 3pm and the main door/luggage store keypads allowed me entry to building at 2:15pm but the apartment door code didn't work at this point. I left my bag and went to the local shops for a bit, returning after 3pm when the flat code was activated.
The property is in an excellent, central location, next door to Startbucks and a few minutes walk from the railway station. The room was modern and big with an amazing view out of the huge windows to shoppers and workers below walking up and down Buchanan Street.
The bath'room' is more like a pod: compact and space-saving with a sliding door and motion sensor lighting; I found it too small and kept knocking my elbows when washing my face at the small sink.
I think someone else mentioned an awful smell in wardrobe from a mop and bucket stored there. It was so bad that I shut the door immediately and never opened it again during my stay. I was grateful for the 6 coat hooks behind the main apartment door, which I used for hanging my clothes instead.
The bed was comfortable although earplugs are essential for sleeping due to buses passing below the windows.
I liked the emphasis on recycling but placement of the bins right beside the sofa/TV wasn't ideal.
