If you re tired of cramped hotel rooms and after a quiet, roomier Guardian-readers/Radio 4 listeners type home from home space for the older more arty/lefty/cultured traveller, or if you re a business traveller (ie - it s not suitable for big noisy get-togethers sorry!), Moolin Rouge Apartment is a very homely (and a little bit quirky) second floor apartment with free wireless internet and free on-demand movies right in the cultural heart of Liverpool City Centre s Bold Street.
With easy collection of keys from premises downstairs, the apartment is right opposite Liverpool s arthouse cinema complex FACT and radical bookshop News From Nowhere, and within 2 minutes walking distance of various bars, cafés and art galleries.
The apartment consists of one large and very quiet double glazed bedroom with a king sized bed, a bathroom with bath and shower, a spacious living room and a fully fitted kitchen. Features Include:
- Large bright bedroom with king sized bed and outlook on Roman Catholic Cathedral (or the top of it at least) - Fully equipped kitchen including microwave, fridge, oven and hob - Free wireless broadband internet - Digital LED television with access to over 5,000 free on-demand movies, iPlayer, etc.
- DVD player (multi-region) and stereo system with fairly arty/progressive DVD library (er, and Murder She Wrote boxsets...) - Digital radio including all local and national DAB stations - Playstation 2 games console with various family games - Board games and a decent library of books - 2 socialist goldfish to stare at, although they don t do very much - Nice pictures of cows hanging on the walls, hence the tenuously linked name.
Please note you may be asked to pay a deposit for your first night s stay on booking.
