Had a 2 night stay here recently and wish it was more. Normally don't care that much for a hotel's decor since it is mostly just a place to sleep, but this hotel is beautiful enough to almost be a destination in itself. It was certainly an oasis from the heat and noise outside. We picked it for the great location around the corner from Jonker St, and so glad we did. The fact that the staff were friendly and helpful completed the trifecta rarely done.
The deluxe room we had was spacious, comfortable and stylish. The bathroom functional with enough room for two people to use together and the shower was strong (I can't stand weak water pressure). My wife remarked it was bright enough in the room to use the mirror properly and do her make up, something she finds difficult in most hotel rooms due tot the lighting.
Only two very minor negative points, firstly you have to turn the hot water heater on and wait 10 minutes for a shower, and second there was no hooks to hang stuff in the room (there were hangers and hooks etc in the bathroom area). Personally both of these were very minor and included only for completeness particularly the hanging since there was a ready alternative.
Overall highly recommended modern and stylish boutique hotel in an old Peranakan building.
