The Townhouse shares a building with a number of different offices in the building and it is not immediately apparent the this is a hotel building.
Reception is on the top floor of the building in the lounge area. The reception is only staffed until a certain time at night and I guess the honesty bar closes at a similar time - we didn't spend much time in the hotel.
Our first night's room faced onto the street one Friday night, which was a little bit noisy as we had to sleep with the window open (no A/C - or we couldn't find the A/c if there is any). However the next nit we were moved without any problems, which was appreciated (we had stayed during some summer dance festival so the hotel was full). We thought at first there was no safe in the room - we were wrong, it was well hidden behind the curtains (instead of being in the usual locations!).
The recommended breakfast place across the street is OK but there are better places within a couple of minutes walk.
The back bedroom that we had on the second night was much bigger and overlooked the lane way (obviously).
Only downside to this hotel was that the beds were incredibly soft.
