This is like a college dormitory.Posted Aug 19, 2013
Pros: It is very reasonably priced for a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment so for our family of 4, both our kids were able to have their own bedroom and bath.
Cons: Supply more amenities: coffee press, salt and pepper, hand soap, dish soap and sponge, wine opener.
These apartments are really set up for college students studying at the nearby university during the school year. There were no amenities in the apartment: no coffee press, no salt or pepper, no hand soap or dish soap, no wine opener. You must bring everything with you. For the price, we were able to get a 3 BR apartment, and each bedroom had its own bath, which is far more reasonable that staying in a hotel. But the location is not near downtown, so you must take a taxi for €12 each way. So consider what you can get for an extra €25 each night closer to downtown. In addition, we arrived at the apartment at 9 pm (after taking the ferry from Wales) to find the reception building closed. Fortunately, we were able to call the number for the security guard who arrived 30 minutes later and was able to give us keys to our apartment.

Disappointing stayPosted Aug 7, 2013
Oven didn't work so it was impossible to cook dinner on first evening. It was impossible to change the channel on the tv with either the controls or the monitor. Needed to stand on furniture to open and close blind in bedroom A as there was no cord, similar problem in living area. Extremely noisy and no notices to ask other residents to be respectful when returning late at night - walls are paper thin. On the Saturday night of our stay there seemed to be a party in the block opposite and it went on very late into the night - there was no staff to deal with this. Have stayed at this apartment several times in recent years and this was the worst stay, apartments are starting to look scruffy and in need of some TLC.

Dirty, Stinky Dorm RoomsPosted Aug 1, 2013
Cons: The representation of the facility and the cleanliness!
Location: It is located a bit out of the way of the city, but not too bad. Restaurants are not within walking distance, but only about a 5 minute drive.
The pictures and description on Expedia are very misleading. These are definitely NOT apartments, but are college dorm rooms. The pictures show what looks to be a colorful, cushy apartment, but trust me, this is not what you will get! The plus is that we had a whole dorm suite to ourselves and the beds were comfortable. The negatives were the uncleanliness of one of the bathrooms (black mold behind the toilet and along the moldings), the awful stench in one of the bedrooms and the common area where the kitchenette is (it smelled like an old, smoky bar after hours!), the stains on the bottom of the mattress in one of the bedrooms (looks like someone threw up on the floor and it splattered up on the side of the mattress), the food still stuck to the utensils in the kitchen (obviously not washed) and the trash can in the kitchen was untouchable (gunk and grime all over it and it even had trash in it already!), you can't leave the bedroom doors open unless you prop a heavy suitcase up against it and if they shut, you have to use your key card to enter it again. The floors are linoleum/cement and I made the mistake of walking around barefoot. When I looked at the bottom of my feet, they were dirt black! If we had booked this for more than one night, we would have left and gone somewhere else, but we were already tired from touring and driving, so decided to just suck it up for one night. We left before the staff was even in the office the next morning!

Friendly staff and home type comfortPosted Aug 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
Our trip got off to an excellent start when we entered the hotel reception. The reception girl was very nice and helpful. Entering the apartment was a pleasant surprise as it was more than we were expecting. The rooms are bright and spacious, clean and welcoming. The showers were amazing! It is about a 20 minute stroll from the city and is a straight route in and out. We had a great time and are planning to go again, for longer and with more friends as soon as we can.

Clean, spacious, but location is off city centerPosted Aug 12, 2011 on Hotels.com
We have 3 adults and 2 small children - 2 and 4 yrs old. the apartment has 3 bedrooms, one room has a double bed, 2 bedrooms have a single bed each. each room has shower ensuite so was really nice when you have a family group and not have to wait for one another to use bathroom. simple decor - pictures on wall, throw cushions on sofa. dinning table has 4 chairs, kitchenette is combined in a "open concept" with the living/sitting room and dining area. really, thats all you need in a place you stay for a few nights. for us, this is like a apartment suite in a hotel but minus the cost. the extra sitting area allows the children to chill - with TV - to buy time for us to pack/unpack/get ready for the day. the kitchen is IKEA fitted, relatively clean, has fridge, microwave (v useful for us), kettle, cooker and basic utensils for cooking and eating. there is an on-site small convenient store. it was nice they supply towels for each room and clean sheets so for the price we paid, its above a hostel but not fancy with service like in a hotel. there is laundry room - self operated. one of us heard youths slamming doors /stomping upstairs in the middle of the night. if you are sound sleeper, then you'll be fine. free parking on site. seemed pretty secure, with cameras around and secured key entry. we saw other travellers who stayed there - mostly couples. the chinese/malaysian lady at the front desk is very helpful - booked us a ground floor for children safety and loaned us door stoppers because of the heavy doors in case children get stuck. i actually brought my own own stoppers but left them behind by mistake! only complain was its too far a walk - with strollers and 4 yr old to get to town. taxi back is about 10 euros. we were there for the waterford Sproai festival ut by the time we got the gang to town, we have to rest again before exploring. for young people or couples with no kids or fit ones, the 20-25minwalk is easy but not necessary pretty, into town. overall, its value for money, if you dont mind the far walk.

Riverwalk Apartments, Waterford, IrelandPosted Jul 30, 2011 on Hotels.com
Fairly new student apartments. Basic accomodation but clean, modern and ideal for a stort stay for a family. Plenty of parking close to rooms, easy to get to. Not quite hotel quality but very good value for money. Would recommend to anyone.
