A nice small hotel in a quiet area close to the University Hospital. Easily accessible from the center of the city with tram (#6). The lobby bar is small and cozy. My room was nice with two windows and the bathroom was clean. WiFi is complimentary. Breakfast was very good, a nice selection of hot and cold food. Staff were... More

Beds are really comfy - and such a stylish hotel! They offer the opportunity to get a free cocktail at the bar if you post a photo of the hotel on... More

It was close enough to access the festival easily, but far enough away that it was quiet at night. The staff was friendly, breakfast was a plentiful buffet, and the room was pleasantly appointed (with a very large bathroom and walk... More

A really nice, comfy hotel. They have low 'Japanese style' beds which are comfy, if a little strange. Apart from that, clean, relaxing, well situated with lovely staff and a good breakfast. I would definitely recommend staying here if in business.

I really loved my stay here. This is truly a design hotel in nature and name. From the beautiful artworks and installations in the hotel, through to the warm greeting and offer of a drink before you check in, it was really a pleasant change. The room was immaculate, beautifully furnished with nice big windows that could be opened, and... More
