Stayed here to try something different and was really impressed by the little cafe downstairs and the friendliness of staff however the room at $130 was great disappointment.
My room was modern but sparsely decorated and the lighting was all fluorescent giving it a cold clinical feeling. The bed was comfortable and very clean and fresh. Bathroom was fine but the wind was whistling in one of the ducts and create a high pitched whistling sound that continued all day. Very annoying. No hair dryer or shampoo or toiletries provided. No wine glasses or any of those little things that make life easy.
If I was a backpacker this place would be perfect, as a hotel guest I was unimpressed.
This place has great potential with friendly staff and passionate owners not to mention a great little cafe downstairs but they need to work on the comfort level of the rooms to be hotel material.
