Dockside - Convenient and cheap but not optimal

Posted Feb 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
When I arrived there was no concierge or check-in counter, only building security, as this is a large residential apartment complex with only a few rental units. The manager of the units comprising Dockside Apartments is offsite and no instructions on where to meet to check in were provided in advance. It took an hour for me to get access to the unit. The units are large, but the beds are not comfortable and the pillows are very hard. There is only a single sheet on the bed, together with a worn duvet (no slip cover, and cleanliness was questionable). The unit had a functioning refrigerator but no dishwasher or washing machine in the space provided. There is no air conditioning and traffic noise is loud with the windows open. The bathroom was sparse, with mixed colour towels that were rough to the touch. Only a single bar of soap was provided, so guests should be advised to bring their own shampoo, conditioner and any other amenities. In terms of restaurants in close proximity, there is a bar next door which did not look like somewhere I would want to frequent but a reasonable pizza place a 5 minute walk away. Dockside Apartments is only a 20 minute walk from the V&A Waterfront which has a large selection of restaurants. Getting a taxi from this location is difficult, and the easiest alternative is to take a 7-10 minute walk to one of the nearby hotels. In conclusion, you get what you pay for with Dockside Apartments. Anticipate having to check in offsite or go through considerable hassle on arrival, and come prepared with any amenities.

Nice apartment, challenging check-in

Posted Apr 21, 2011
While the apartment was as-described on the website, the check-in process was not described on Expedia and was quite complicated. As no instructions for arrival were included on Expedia or in the confirmation emails that were sent before arrival, we planned to head directly to the hotel from the airport. Fortunately, we decided to rent a car rather than take the airport shuttle to the city center, as when we called to ask about parking, we were informed that we had to retrieve the keys and complete the check-in process at another location approximately three miles from the hotel. The property manager claimed he had emailed instructions the day before, but they were never received. In any case, this information would have been important to know well in advance to make appropriate arrangements. After we managed to get directions over the phone to meet the property manager, the check-in process took over an hour. The apartment itself was in fine condition, though only two shabby towels and one set of well-worn (and somewhat stained) linens were provided for our stay. The apartment was furnished with minimal cookware and enough mismatched dishes for two people to have one meal. The location was good, squeezed between the CBD, De Waterkant and the V&A Waterfront. Unfortunately, our stay was soured on arrival. I would not recommend this accommodation in the future.
