Thanks for your feedback. We will definitely note your concerns and try our best to improve. We are aware that the carpet is a bit aging. It has been on schedule to replace for a while, however just been hard to find a match between the guests bookings and delivery availability. Together other furnitures are to be replaced too within this month.
The market position of the apartment is a normal service apartment. It's not a hotel or anything luxury. The price we charge compare to other apartments in the area is a lot lot cheaper, if you have done good research. I doubt you can find an apartment in near area with a similar price next time. Please also note Tripadviser took a big share of what you pay too. Sydney CBD is a very expensive place. The apartment is very much appreciated by most of our guests considering the price, location and the includings, this is what keeps us in there. Regarding to wifi, it dose have wifi with $10 charge, because it cost us extra to equip it. Sometimes we give to guests for free, but it's just the price.
