This is a very modern, sleek arty hotel with modern decor. Our bed was up against a painted glass wall. The other side of the glass was the bathroom. Not much of a noise buffer for someone using the bathroom but it looked good when the bathroom light was on which lit up the bed. There was also a stove, sink and mini fridge in our room, with cutlery, plates and a saucepan. The room was average sized and clean. The location was perfect - steps to Chapel St and all the shops, restaurants and cafes. The only problem we had was we paid for WiFi for a day but because we both had electronic devices, we were charged twice for WiFi use. Apparently the price is per user per day, not per room. They very kindly agreed to drop one of the charges after we complained. Our room faced the back of the hotel which was a field hockey field. Overall very happy with our stay here!
