There is one bedroom on ground floor which is nice with an en suite no problems there. When you go up the spiral staircase to the other bed (fold up bed which you would be better sleeping on the floor as its like a rock!) you can't stand up straight you have to bend over or crawl to get to the bed!
The other thing I noticed was the temperature there is no air con and we had some trouble trying to open some of the windows at times it took two of us to open some of them. I also expected the CD and DVD player to be there which is also advertised on the website: visitliverpool.com.
It's a pity really as the apartments are quite nice and centrally located about 2 minutes from Lime St station.
Wouldn't stay here again unless there was only two of us which really is all the apartment can cater for comfortably.

The building used to be a warehouse and has been converted into apartments and although there are more apartments in the building, the guy we booked with has two of them.
The one we stayed in was up a flight of stone stairs and our first impression was wow, very stylish and modern, lounge leading onto open plan kitchen which was very well equipped and short of nothing, a bedroom with a bathroom with loo and shower cubicle, another bathroom with a loo and a bath that doubled as a jacuzzi, this was bliss, also had a shower attached. There is another bed up some spiral stairs, is a sofa bed or futon, not as comfortable as the double bed in the bedroom but ok, only downside as such to where this bed was is that once at the top of the stairs you had to crouch down as you were very near to the ceiling and you certainly could not stand up. Black leather couch and chairs in the lounge area and a small colour portable TV.
The decor was very plush and tasteful.
The guy who owns/manages the apartments was helpful and friendly and he told us that as he does the accommodation bookings for people appearing at the Empire he has had quite a few stars staying at the apartments, Marti Pellow, Stephen Gatley, Peter Kay and Toyah Wilcox to name a few.
Apartments were very central with the shops and train station being a short stroll away. Not really a place to stay with small kids I would say (my daughters are 20 and 12), but ideal for a weekend stay to do the pubs, clubs, shops etc, spoil yourself a bit.
I paid 90 for the night, but the apartments can sleep 4 so split between 4 of you works out ok. Would definitely stay here again.
