My partner and I stayed over at the Hip Hotel for just the one night. We found it quite easily as it’s close to the station and easy for taxis too. The hotel is actually part of the Townhouse Hotel opposite, that also gets great reviews, but the hip is more of a self service type hotel. You check in at the Townhouse and that’s where you have breakfast etc but you stay over the road where there isn’t any receptionist or anything.
There’s a lift, which is always welcome with luggage etc and we were really surprised when we opened our door. The rooms are very modern. You walk in through an entrance hall with complimentary hot drinks and a great bathroom and then in to the bedroom. It’s a really big room with a kind of cub in the center that forms the bed in the center with the TV etc and seating and a table around the outside. Great if you’ve got to work or use a laptop. Good if you like to lye on the bed and watch TV. I haven’t seen anything like it. You can choose different kinds of lighting including different colours.
Both the Hip and the Townhouse have vending machines so you can get drinks etc at any time, and the townhouse has lots of comfortable seating for the evenings if you want company rather than your room. Breakfast is impressive to say the least and is the widest variety we’ve seen when we were traveling across Europe on this trip. It’s not cheap though- could have cost the same as dinner if full price. We got ours included in our deal which made a stay at the Hip much more of a better deal than staying at the Townhouse, so make sure you look at the price of both when booking. Also, breakfast was stupidly busy around eight o’clock. Seems to be lots of business people staying or coach loads or something and it made it difficult to cope, by the looks of things. Leave it until later if you can.
The Hip Hotel certainly is that: it’s modern and trendy. For the size of the room I’m sure much more could have been made of it and it was a little form over function really. The bathroom had very little ventilation and was like an oven. It made it rather uncomfortable for two people to use. We were given less than half a loo roll between us and I had to go and ask for more and the towels were paper thin and not big enough unless you’re a supermodel with no hair. Parking was difficult and could be very expensive if you don’t know what you’re doing. We were lucky.
Overall, great for a one night stay. Roomy, novel and different.
