The hotel has 127 apartments - a mix of one and two bedroom and studio apartments, featuring modern design and amenities such as high-speed internet access, CD players and LCD televisions. The apartments are perfect for longer-stay visitors, coming with separate lounge and dining area with CD player, a fully equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer as well as washing machine and dryer.
