Stayed one night during a business trip. Location is excellent and the concept refreshing. I love the design of the Hempel suites - felt more like a mini apartment and the use of space is excellent. Fantastic shower, comfy bed.
The downside: 1. No sound Proofing. I was woken by the sound of high heels and voices in the passage way (sounded like they were in my room). It made me realize that any sounds I made would also be easily heard from outside my room! Not good. 2. This also relates to noise - the cleaning staff were having a major discussion right outside my room and due to lack of sound proofing this was very intrusive. Management should also issue staff soft sole shoes as the noise from their walking (on beautiful wooden floors) was very loud 3. While I love the use of marble, they seem to be battling to keep the marble basins clean resulting in deep rusty looking stains in the corners. 4. The black out electronic blind is great and I was expecting a totally dark room, however, the phone has a large LCD screen emulating white light (I covered it with a book) and the door lets in a lot of light from the passage (which I guess is partially the reason for outside noises being so loud in the room. 5. Lastly, I feel the wash basin (in the loo) while very stylish is impractical. It was impossible to wash my face without splashing the floor due to the narrow design, tap that come far forward and the overhanging cabinet.
Having said all this, I would return if the rate was reasonable as this hotel is very unique and a nice change from the standard hotel room. I'm just hoping the owners will actually read all the comments from various guests as many of us seem to be saying the same things.
