We found this place by looking for novelty digs in the 'Dam. As we were given money towards our honeymoon we decided to treat ourselves to a 5* room and we were not disappointed. If we had been given the room with a swing or piano or bath in the middle of the room we would have been even more stoked BUT the one we had was huge, like an apartment. There was a bath big enough for two, big, soft bed and a sofa and table area near a television that we could get some home channels on.
On different levels there were art installations which were really fab and there was also a little museum explaining the history of the building which was brilliant and just a bit different to have it right where we stayed. There was also a library area to use and chill in.
We were up on the 5th floor and large panes of glass gave us views right down to the dining area. Breakfast was not included in the price and the food was expensive so we only had one breakfast there and stocked up at the supermarket for most of our food!
The tea and coffee facilities were really odd but interesting as they were in cupboards in communal areas. It would have been slightly better if they provided milk sachets there or a fridge but never mind!
The hotel is out of the centre so requires a tram ride to get there but it is easy to hop on and off and we invested in 72 hour passes and used them to get about quite a bit.
