The Pure is a small and somewhat chic hotel that harkens back to the days when a design hotel meant everything was all white and sterile. I can see this being really cool a number of years ago. It is still kept it good condition, it's just that the look is somewhat dated. That said, my room, albeit tiny, was cute and had a balcony which was really nice.
The hotel is quite near the city's main train station, but on a street which goes out on either side of the station so you have to sort of guess which side the hotel is on to start out. As it happens, one side is comprised of strip joints and sex shops (the side I happened to pick), and the other side is where the hotel is. I wouldn't want to have had to make that choice at night, let's just say that.
The hotel is very quiet and low key with no guests ever in sight and only staff shuffling around and whispering, sort of like an all-white library. It did not make you want to linger in the lobby.
One nice perk is that the staff will give you a laptop to use in your room, she told me to feel free and take it to your room, I think that meant please don't stay in the lobby, we want to shuffle around and whisper. But it was nice to have one. Another plus was the breakfast. It was delicious and a much more pleasant and energetic atmosphere when people are down there eating, far less off putting. It was also included in the room price. I'll drink to that! English breakfast tea, of course.
