I took a chance booking this hotel from the one earlier review here and wasn't sure what to expect. I discovered that this really is a fabulous hotel in the middle of Hamra. I have stayed in two hotels in this district on a previous visit and this far outshone both of those. It is a lovely, comfortable place to stay in a great location. I can highly recommend it as a welcome and refreshing change in this neighbourhood.
The hotel has recently been refurbished in a modern, clean-lines style and is spotlessly clean. There are about 30 rooms, which are all suites of various sizes - mine was like a studio apartment, with a bathroom, a small kitchen and sitting area. Some utensils and crockery are provided and if you need something more the staff will find it for you, no problem. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom was spotless with a power shower and no shortage of hot water.
The hotel staff were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful, and the security guy will go and get anything you need if you can't find it or you can't go yourself.
I had a room on the second floor near the reception and it can be a little bit noisy in the morning from traffic, but this is Hamra, which isn't the place to find a quiet hotel! I think if you are on a higher floor there would be a bit less noise. In any case, it didn't stop me sleeping and there were no nightclubs (in another hotel on a previous visit I couldn't sleep at all because of a nightclub next door to the hotel).
There is no restaurant so you can use your kitchen to make your own breakfast (there is a small supermarket 5 minutes walk away) or there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. There are free laundry facilities (which I didn't use) and internet in all the rooms. There is a big tv with lots of channels and good reception. A/C is also nice and quiet.
