눉Wifi didnt work when we arrived. Staff was informed and told us to wait 2mins so he could talk to the Broadband Company. Waited 1hour and he still didnt return. Didnt see or hear from the staff the rest of the trip, and the Wifi never got fixed. Bad. Other rooms were rented out to a stag party, we were 6 friends travelling so didnt mind, but could imagine it wouldnt be that nice if travelling with kids. The sugar in the kitchen was spoilt and looked disgusting, other than that clean.
눇Nice rooms, excellent location. We came 2hours early and was allowed to check in. Good.

눉It seems this building was converted only in 2014, but the interior looks much worse for wear. We stayed in the 3 bed/6 adult apartment on the ground floor. Bedrooms looked superficially OK- laminate floors and dark emulsion on the walls; the linen and towels were clean (pic). But the window frame wasn't sealed in one room, where a damaged bedside lamp dangled from its cable; another had brown damp stains on the ceiling. The bathroom smelled damp, had a loose hot tap in the basin and precariously steep steps to access. The kitchen was unappealing. Although technically clean, the fitted fridge door doesn't fit, and there are cracks in the sealant around the worktop. The lower of two steep steps to the kitchen area was loose. The apartment is decorated with a selection of vintage nautical objects, which should give the place a jauntily idiosyncratic air. But in the context of a cheap/bodged conversion, and a general air of neglect, the feeling was more of a macabre Victorian crime scene. Or: "Creepy. Like sleeping in a brothel", as my 15y daughter said. To my surprise. This family was pleased to leave after just one night. The apartment would be great for 6 guys larging it up for a rugby weekend bender: they will neither cook in the crappy kitchen, nor notice the bodged bathroom, and - if they should ever observantly pause between drinking games - might actually enjoy the seedy ambience. It might also work as a hen night venue for a second marriage, since the air of melancholy "make do and mend" could encourage a beeezy kind of optimism; and of course after 4 mojitos who gives a &€#~? CSI fans might enjoy trying to pinpoint forensically what lends the rooms off this long windowless corridor their morbid taint. The Adams Family would feel right at home. ... but we won't be going back.
눇Duke Street is in the heart of Liverpool, but the drinking part, rather than the shops or cultural part. The building facing these apartments is an abandoned lap dancing venue (pic). There's a bar downstairs with a kitchen (and friendly staff). This place is basically a pub with rooms. We didn't realise that when we booked.
