Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Upon arrival, the staff was friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and had what we needed. We didn't have a "Do Not Disturb" sign for our door, which we wanted to use so housekeeping didn't have to come in each day. However, when we asked the front desk for one, they told us instead that they'd just let the housekeeping staff know (they didn't), so we continued getting clean towels and our room cleaned each day, which we didn't need. We had to park the next street over as there was no on-site parking available until the night before we left. We were though given a voucher which was very helpful. Apex Greenmarket was clean and a great place to stay, not to mention its premier location. Walk outside to perfect views of the castle and plenty of places to eat and visit! We would definitely stay here again.
