My wife, myself and another couple very much enjoyed our brief one-night stay at The Yard. As others have noted, we were welcomed like family by Maria and Stefanie (and adorable hotel dog, Pina, who we loved). Our accomodations were spacious and spotless (we stayed in the "tennis" suite and our friends in the "hunting" suite (think antlers!)). Plenty of outlets, high-tech lighting and electronic window shades, spacious well-equipped bathroom, Nespresso machine. The funky boutique mood of the hotel suited our group very nicely and we enjoyed a cocktail (mixed by Maria) on the comfy couches in the visually fascinated lobby filled with sporting equipment, high-fashion art and books of every description. Prior to our arrival, Maria and the owner had been a great help in arranging dinner for us (see separate review of Al Garghet, which we loved). We left early in the morning, before breakfast was to be served, and Stefanie was so kind to rush to assemble some delicious food for us. Parking was convenient in a secure garage beneath the hotel. All in all a fun and funky retreat in the middle of the bustling city with a wonderful, caring staff.

Spontaneously, this initial project became something more, and in a few years The Yard turned into a prestigious boutique hotel. ... more less
