Expert review of Posh Pads at The Casartelli

Exuberant, extravagant and very definitely Scouse.

A selection of big-and-bigger serviced apartments in the recreated Casartelli building, once home to an Italian business which made fine scientific instruments. Many are themed to within an inch of their lives - there’s a psychedelic, eye-popping Beatles apartment (which I'm not sure I could sleep in!) an opulent black and gold option and terraces agogo, not to mention more rhinestones than Dolly Parton could shake her bosom at. It’s the aparthotel version of a Liverpool dressed up and ready for a night on the town.

Location: 

Hanover Street is a busy thoroughfare on the fringes of Liverpool ONE, with plenty going on and easy access to the Cavern Quarter, Albert Dock and city attractions. Those who like to know where their next chocolate hit is coming from will find The Chocolate Cellar, a great little independent business, just across the road.

Bedrooms: 

The apartments all have two bedrooms and two bathrooms and there’s a selection of superior, superior themed and penthouse apartments in two wings of the building - make sure you get in the right lift. Heavy use means some of the finishes are looking a bit bashed, but there’s plenty in the way of distraction courtesy of extravagant linens, Grecian-style urns, marble floors and a plethora of mirrored surfaces. It’s a listed building, so some windows aren’t double-glazed and street noise is a factor. For a quiet night, request an apartment at the back end of the building. The duplex Champagne penthouse is of particular note because of its duo of vast outside terraces and coffee table that doubles as an enormous ice bucket.

Public areas: 

Reception is stylish and comfortable and a door leads onto the in-house pub, but with such huge floor space in the apartments (none are under 950 square feet) there’s plenty of room to swing a herd of cats in private.

Eating and drinking: 

Each apartment has real cooking facilities (the apartments were once marketed as permanent homes), so there’s nothing to stop you cooking up a fittingly fabulous meal here. There’s room service breakfast, or guests can walk through to the connected Hub Alehouse & Kitchen, a pub and restaurant which serves breakfast at weekends. It’s soon to be joined on the Casartelli’s ground floor by a new brasserie, Champagne and oyster bar.

Service: 

Reception is staffed 24 hours a day and staff are kindly, though you might not have much to do with them.

Who stays there: 

The frillier apartments, such as the Purple Penthouse, have got “hen party” written all over them, although the floor space also means they can be great for families midweek. There’s a security guard as well as a concierge here at the weekend, a nod not only to the fact that things have the potential to get excitable (although it’s residents only after 10pm) but that the place sees its fair share of football-playing residents.

Price advice: 

Rates are based on the number of occupants, so a couple will pay less than two couples.

Pros: 
Huge living space
Fun and glam
Own underground parking
Cons: 
Can be noisy
Looking slightly bashed
