          Hi. We have children age 8 , 7 ,3 . For safety reason, May we know if the balcony doors and bedroom windows are fix with secure locks so that they can be locked if necessary ? Is the apartment child friendly? Are there any in-room safe box? Also, may we know where is the nearest supermarket from the apartment ? Thank you Rgds CJ

          Our apartment was definitely child friendly, but not sure if the locks were child proof. The balcony was the only issue as the windows were higher up. Lots of supermarkets within walking distance. Great location

          Hi Shakuda, the car park is exactly1.9 metres, your Santa Fe should fit under. There is also free street parking available around the Dorchester. The Hyundia IMAX definitely does NOT fit under the building. Kind regards... More
