We stayed one night at the East Hotel in an East studio. Plenty space, great bed, and all new and modern, design-ish in all matters. Kitchenette was well stocked. Nespresso machine with lots of espresso pods. Great! Could easily have stayed for a longer time, but a las, we were only on our way through this time.
The hotels has bikes (and bicycle helmets - hurrah!) that they lend out. Beaut way to explore leisurely on your own. The bikes were extremely comfortable!
Just down the street there are plenty of little shops and restaurants where you can grab a meal at night. The hotel is a fair way out from the city centre (Civic area), though.
The only negative thing is that there isn't really a door closing the bathroom / toilet from the rest of the room. The shower and the toilet have doors towards the sink-area of the bathroom, but there is no door from the bathroom to the kitchenette/room. Not necessarily a problem, but neat to know if you're travelling with someone you don't know that well.
The swimming pool is a public pool approximately 4-500 meters walk away. Parking is 10 dollars a night in the car park with elevators directly to your floor. Nice and easy.
