2019 Early September - Had a 6 Night stay.
The only complaint was very Low water pressure at certain times of the mornings. One other thing for other guests to consider is there is at least 2 flights of stairs to ascend or 3 flights if you are on the top floor. This is not a complaint it is just a cautionary note to anyone that climbing stairs my present a problem for. There is no elevator in this building. The City of St. John's has a lot of elevation changes between streets. his location is Prime, right across the Street from Atlantic Place where you can go out on the Deck and look across Harbour Drive and see all the boats and Cruise Ships on the dock.

Nicely renovated suite but very thin walls! Noisy!
The walls and ceiling are incredibly thin, I could hear toilets flushing from other suites, walking as if they were in the suite and conversations on the third floor, I stayed on the second floor. There is a gap in the front hallway door so I could hear everything in the hallway and stairs. There is no dead bolt nor "peep"hole in the door and that would have made me feel more secure. I was a women travelling alone on business and was not 100% comfortable. Also be warned -Saturday night is very loud from the bar attached to the building, and the windows are not insulated so you can hear people on Water st. --I mean everything, sneezing to conversations to the partiers yelling. I had a noise machine and ear plugs and it was not enough to drown out the noise of the bar, people in the hallway and guests on the third floor. Also, I felt I really was on my own since there's no one really to call after hours, no concierge, and the binder states NOT to call 911 from their phone, which didn't work anyways. Otherwise the suite and contents are all new: bathroom, kitchen, living room, bedroom but I couldn't get past how thin the walls, door and ceiling are...

Perfect location, wonderfully renovated
Loved, loved, loved it! Perfect location. St. John’s is a very walkable city and this apartment is at the centre of everything. The apartment was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Someone has some great design skill and did an absolutely marvellous renovation and update. Other reviews complained about the odour, but this is to be expected in a historic renovated building and was not excessive. You do hear noises from outside and the the other units, but again, it is not excessive or unexpected in a building of this age. Our parking pass was overlooked but Vanessa quickly resolved that. The kitchen is well set up and stocked. The one missing appliance would be a hair dryer in the bathroom. If you need one, be sure to pack one! We would return to this site in a heart beat and highly recommend it. We were in unit 201.

As Good As It Gets
This is a beautiful property, a true home away from home. The location is amazing, literally minutes from George St., cleanliness was 10+, a beautiful place, tastefully decorated with lots of room. I doubt there's a better place to stay in St. John's.

Hideaway in a gritty part of town
This is a very nice 1-bedroom apartment in a renovated brick building in downtown St. John's. I knew there was no lobby or reception; you let yourself in with an access code. The apartment itself was fine, but could have been better in two ways: there's a fully equipped kitchen, complete with coffeemaker, but no coffee. The main street in front of the building can be rough, with homeless and panhandlers, and the weather is highly variable. So not having to go out for a cup of coffee would have been a great thing. Also, the TV in the living room didn't work, but since the one in the bedroom did, no biggie. If not for the street surroundings -- choice of three long sets of stairs to get to the unit from the main street, or a rear entrance with only a few stairs from a filthy, graffiti-laden parking lot behind -- this would have gotten a better review.

A home away from home...
From the time our reservation was made to the day that we checked out, the service received was incredible. The response time was quick and the information provided allowed for a stress free welcome and stay. This was our first time visiting St. John's and my wife and I had no idea what to expect, where to stay etc. I know that she spent some time researching and I am glad that she did. This place was clean, cozy and provided all of the small luxuries of being at home. The owners really thought of everything a person would need whilst traveling. But, if you do forget anything, the location is great- right in the middle of shops, restaurants and bars! Perfect for walking and taking in all of the beautiful sites of this quaint city. And when the weather got dicey, it was nice to have the option to curl up on the sofa, turn on their electric fire place and watch television with an ice cold Iceberg brew in hand! Definitely a beer to try on your trip:-) Seriously, book this place. You will not be disappointed. We have already recommended this spot to our friends whom plan to visit St. John's soon.
