I stayed here on business and didn't pay the bill so have no idea how much my room actually cost but it was extremely small. I had grand visions of a treehouse like mezzanine sleeping level having looked at some pictures but I guess my hosts plumped for the lower end of the room selection.
The communal areas of the hotel are warm and vibey - the bar and lounge are laid out nicely and it's a pleasant place to hang out. It seemed a little "sceney" to me - lots of people on Mac laptops browsing Facebook and Twitter but no so fervently that they didn't have time to check out any new arrivals arriving through the front door.
So yes my room was small - probably a total footprint of 3 double beds including the shower room. I like the hanging lamp shades and ropes for towels etc but it just felt like an extension of a teenagers bedroom. There was no wardrobe, telephone, safe or mini bar. Just too cramped for me. I'd investigate spending a little more on a bigger room if I were to stay there again.
Re security - I'd read the reports of room theft mentioned on here so was wary. My door didn't shut properly without a helping hand, so that could well have been the reason for some intrusions. There were guys on the front door in the evening checking who was coming and going so I think there's no need to worry as long as you check your room door is properly closed and always leave the do not disturb sign outside.
Overall a nice place to stay, just check which size room you are getting if you intend to be swinging cats :)
