Lots of places to eat and shop nearby. Lots of energy and people everywhere. If you like urban buzz and a comfy, modern hotel, you... More

First of all - I would definitely stay here again. The rooms are clean, very reasonable price, and a good location. Friendly, helpful reception staff. I loved the funky feel - it was a nice change from the narrow experience of what a hotel should be. Multiple colored lights in the hallway, reflected off plastic bead drapes around each room... More

Stayed here last year and would definitely go back. Great location, very clean, friendly staff and good value. Bedroom was quite small but an adequate size, bathroom was lovely and well decorated. Highly recommend.

Beware this is an adventurous hotel. Full of surprises and beautifully adorned. At every corner, you will find a color. I recommend the breakfast unlike many recommendations. It's a great place to stay for 2. Location in front of park and close to shopping, art galleries. up and coming area. Cool.

My partner and I Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights last September. The hotel is very modern and quirky. We loved the quirkiness of our room but if you weren't very mobile or had mobility problems this room wouldn't be advisable as you did have to duck and squeeze yourself around a bit. I liked the fact that you... More
