You need a code to enter the property initially. I was a bit worried that it might not work but it did so a good start. Flat was comfortably furnished with a nice kitchenette with dish washer and washing machine. Enough basic cookware to do simple meals. The TV didn't work - there was a number you could ring out of hours if you had a problem but I didn't bother as I wasn't that concerned about watching telly.
The bathroom was lovely with both a bath and a shower although my colleague in the next room only had a shower so I guess it's luck which you get.
The only reason I'd not stay there again is the noise at night. Being city centre you expect a bit of noise, and I've stayed in the area quite a lot so wasn't expecting silence but there were glass skips in the street below which were being filled and emptied throughout the night, someone decided to have a screaming match for a couple of hours outside and then just as I'd got to sleep the dawn chorus started (who knew there were so many seagulls in Birmingham!) which included bird fights over the rubbish that had been left from the skips. So after an hour or two of sleep the flat lost its charm somewhat.
If you can sleep through noise I'd highly recommend these apartments. If you can't then you'll be disappointed with your stay.
