We had a big room which had floor to ceiling glass on 2 sides overlooked by office buildings - it felt like we were standing in a goldfish bowl with no privacy. We could see people in the offices around us which was disconcerting, so we had to draw the curtains for most of our stay as we were showering, changing etc.
Initially we were impressed with the size of the bed and the coffee maker, but then when we actually started using things we realized that it is one of those hip trendy hotels where the designer concentrated on it looking good but not on it being comfortable or useable. The shower room was a box with little light, so tight there wasn't room to swing a kitten never mind a cat, and a lip on the entrance which we stubbed our toes on everytime we walked in. When you turned the shower on the whole bathroom flooded, including the toilet area, so you couldn't leave clothes or towels inside, you had to leave them outside, another reason the curtains had to be closed!
To make matters worse we had 2 rooms full of young drunken students beside us and it was party central till about 4am with music and shouting.
When we checked out next morning at 8am a group of late teens/early 20's started tunelessly playing the piano in the foyer and screaming obscenities. The staff did nothing. There are apartments for long stay attached to the hotel using the same foyer, etc, and it looks as though they are popular with noisy kids.
We wouldn't recommend this hotel or stay there again. Pity as it is very central on Cuba Street.
