The hotel interior is very much based around the eclectic art pieces. It's very dark inside, and if not for the brightly coloured art, would be a bit oppressive
On the plus side of things: good gym, lots of bench space in the bathroom, nice thick carpet, good size TV, quirky decor in the rooms, close to the museum and Cuba St.
On the minus side: std rooms are small (too small for 2 for more than a night), not close to Lambton Quay shopping area, rooms can be noisy with wind (2 colleagues swapped rooms as the couldn't sleep), hotel dining is very expensive, and my hot tap made terrible noise when I turned it on due to old pipes. There were no soap dishes in the shower or sink area which made things a little messy too.
I think the room cost about $240/nt, and although it was nice, I would expect a larger room, and something that didn't look out to a concrete parking area and the other section of the hotel - meaning I had to keep the drapes shut for privacy .
