the property is no doubt trying very hard to be trendy and hip, but it appears they've overlooked the basics. On check-in we found our bedsheets to be stained and had to call for replacements. Not a good way to make a first impression, and frankly quite a turn-off.
location-wise, the hotel is in the heart of the CBD, which is good for business travelers but not so much for leisure visitors. also be warned that rooms facing the main road will get very noisy during morning rush-hour traffic. the rooms were functional, but aren't anywhere as nice as they appear on the site. overall the whole experience was a disappointment- we really wanted this place to be good but they just couldn't deliver.
