                                                                                                      5 of 5

Close to everything. 5 minutes walking to catch the bus 86 to the city center and last stop is Albert Dock. The price was cheap compared to other properties with such fantastic facilities. Restaurants are so close, 3 minutes walking with halal food availabl. Would highly recommend this property for even three families of two kids each. The area is nice and quite. There are two bathrooms one upstairs with bath and the other is next to the kitchen with shawer. The kitchen is big with everything available. All the rooms are well readied to have a very good night and even romantic sleep.
