We stayed at the Brook Street apartment - number 5.
The advert said that there would be parking included, this was further confirmed when we collected the keys from the owner who said that there would be parking until 10 am (from a different hotel), it turned out that actually there wasn't proper parking at all, it was permit only and there was also no permits available.
The whole place was horrendous. The front door had gaps around it but that was the least of this apartment's problems. This was realised pretty much as soon as we opened the door and the mouldy smell hit us
Two of the stairs were broken and so very dangerous (despite discovering this early on, we found this to be easily forgotten about and nearly fell through it numerous times).
The bathroom was ok at best, there was no lock on the door, the shower was being held up by a cable tie.
The bedroom doors didn't close because the bed was in the way, the bedding smelt a bit muggy/musty, the pillows were as flat as a piece of paper. Beds were like two singles pushed together, incredibly uncomfortable.
The living room was set out with 2 stained sofas and a few wooden style chairs set out around a coffee table. There were various canvases on the walls with cigarette burns, cigarette buts hanging out of them. Digs in the walls, stains on the walls.
Despite it saying there was wifi, there was no password provided or anything.
This was so basic beyond belief, would not recommend this to anyone, especially not for the price being asked for. Wish we had known how basic/bad this was as there were plenty of AirB&Bs for not much more in price.
The only plus side is that it was in a good location, but that is literally all that was good about this place. Oh, and the only other plus side is that we only stayed for one night, any longer and I would have paid out for somewhere else to stay.
