OK... you're probably thinking it's perfect. Well, if you're a) younger than me and b) a smoker then it would be. This place is cool.
Ideal location - walk across the road up the stairs and you're in the lift station. Funky rooms, ideal
Cool rooms - we were in Nikita, my bro' in law in Hakanui (or something) both very cool and just like the pictures.
Great staff - really friendly, really helpful and left you wanting nothing.
Good restaurant - "The Kitchen" had good food (not cheap, but that's patrly down to exchange rates) and a busy atmosphere. Was also used for breakfast which was tasty and plentiful.
Bar - it also had the best bar in town, with 'nagels' (google - Hammerschlagen) and a big terrace.
That's the Pro's. What about the con's?
The bar - smoking indoors. Being a non-smoker it was a real turn-off later in the evening. The nightclub - downstairs to the hotel. Busy. and largely aimed at the late teen - early 30 brigade - and I'm just a bit too old now. Also, the noise did carry - a bit (didn't disturb me and we were floor 1)
So... if you fit the profile, want a fun and funky holiday then this is the place for you.
