This hotel is fabulous! Wonderful exterior and interior, great design, cosy living room feel to it with couches and rugs in one corner of the restaurant. Just beautiful, lots of character. The rooms are all unique and have great design features. Our beds were too warm for the time of year, woke up all sweaty. But there's a shower, so......

This hotel tries to sell a minimum of comfort and atmosphere as a "design experience". I got a room on the 6th floor that felt like a prison cell: small, cold, no decoration, worn furniture, a tiny tv set from around 1979 (vintage, I assume), no curtains, cables and pipes, concrete floor, poor lightning, no minibar, no water cooker/coffee, no...

The hotel room was very creative and interesting, and the building itself is historic as well. It lacks unique ambience in the public area though, and the water in the room did not go down so well. Considering that our shower is IN the room (no separation between the shower and the bedroom), the water from the shower in the...

Booked and 2* but upgraded to 3* room. I recommend 3* room because they are bigger and more practical. The shower was behind a large door and a bit too much design and little functionality. Hot water + coffee in the corridor, but a bit difficult to find.
