We very much liked the hotel and the area around it. I confess that I was getting a little anxious as we approached the address of the 1926 Apartments because the area seemed a little industrial -- near the waterfront with warehouses, et cetera. But it turned out that the hotel is located in a very fun, up and coming artisan area with lots of unique jewelry, clothing and art shops, plenty of nice cafes, and a fun, relaxed vibe. In fact the location is great in many respects, including the fact that it is maybe 200 feet from the Mt. Carmel funicular and easy walking distance to the German Colony at the foot of the B'hai Temple and gardens.
Our room was as advertised -- unique, colorful, fun. It was spacious with a nice kitchenette and a small balcony overlooking the pedestrian area below with the cafes and shops.
One note: If you are driving, the traffic patterns around the hotel are really confusing, with several one-way streets, and the hotel itself is actually a little back from the street in the pedestrian walking area. But the hotel staff are helpful, so call ahead and have them walk you through how to get to the one-way street that passes nearest to the hotel.
