terrible experience!! we could not enter the building as the receptionist was absent and all calls to Stay Alfred were going on voicemail. we had to wait for 2 hours outside the building and ask a neighbour to let us in.. we would have had to book another hotel as there was nobody answering the helplines at stay alfred and we sent so many emails also which also went unanswered. the apartment was dimly light and no ceiling lights in bedrooms and plug not working in bedroom.. and it was not a nice experience overall

Unacceptable and disgusting property stay away!
This was the absolute most disgusting place we have EVER stayed at. Every this was dirty! The sheets def weren’t changed so we ended up going to the CVS and buying some bleach and detergent and washed everything. ALL of the towels had a strand of hair in them. The dishwasher hod something gross in the inside bottom. Looked like rubber pieces and a garlic clove. But THE WORST THING was the carpet in the bed rooms. This legit made me sick to my stomach. It was disgusting. So much so that I went to the target and got a pair of slippers to wear around. Location was great...however, there’s construction right across the street and they decided to start jackhammering at 7am. There were sirens all through the night and horns all over the place and The tall buildings make everything echo that much more. We travel with a fan to sleep with and when I turned it on it fell right on my wife’s head. Overall this was the worst stay I have every experienced. Usually stay Alfred is a great property but not this one. Whoever owns that apartment should be ashamed of themselves for letting it get in that condition. Downright unacceptable! Do not stay here!

Great location!
Pros: Great location, instructions, and stay. This hotel is a walk away from everything. The rooms were clean and modern. Plus, it felt like home. Cons: Very noisy area, it is across from a night club, and right off the main streets where emergency vehicles frequent. Plus, there’s major construction going on next door as wells. However, the noise didn’t deter me from giving this place high ratings. I really enjoyed my stay.

This property was amazing. It had the comfort of your very own apartment. Wi-fi was free and everything was provided for you. They even had a kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils for those who don't want to break the bank on take out.
