Location & style
Faff accessing key codes especially for euro overseas visitors roaming mobiles
We thought the location was going to be good, however there is no street parking in Providence and we had a rental car, so that was expensive (£25/night). The wifi was good. There were organic toiletries, which I liked.
We arrived for our two night stay in the early evening, with food we had just purchased at a grocery store. There were not enough baking pans or cooking utensils to cook in the oven. We asked the person on the contact phone number for scissors, a knife, baking pans, more utensils and were told that other guests must have thrown them away or even broken them. Downcity may have provided them, but will not replace them. Further, we were told that Downcity won't provide any sharp knives or scissors. This made cooking very difficult! Surely, any aparthotel must replace broken items, after all they asked for a $100 deposit on check in. We checked out the two bedrooms in 304 and discovered that one bedroom had a glass door! Yes, a clear glass door on a bedroom. That makes changing clothes or any other private activity impossible. The person the phone told me that everything in the flat was as pictured on their website and I had agreed to their terms of service. Therefore, I had agreed to have a glass door. The next day, maintenance brought in a curtain to hang behind the clear glass bedroom door. They also offered to provide more cooking items. We had plans to eat elsewhere that night, so we declined. But, please be warned that if you plan to cook on arrival, thinking that this is a well equipment aparthotel, you may be disappointed. Hopefully, Downcity will upgrade the clear glass bedroom door (?) to a normal bedroom door, but if you are making a reservation for the two bedroom flat, you might want to specifically ask about this. Additionally, you might want to note that there are two steep and tall flights of stairs to get to the apartments. If you don't want to drag your belongings up the stairs, then this place is not for you.
It was clean, roomy, and in the city.
The fact that it had one air conditioner it was a bit hot in here.
Great location. Restaurants within walking distance. Great area. Bigger than actual pictures.
Very nice studio style apartment, very clean, close to Providence attractions. Very large space, loved the exposed brick and wood floors. Sits above a tavern which was great for dinner and drinks. Highly recommend!
Hard to find on first try. Drove past it twice and didn't see it. Asked two locals who never heard of it. No parking lot, so you have to park on street at a meter or one of the pay-for-parking lots.
