I was sad tired and stressed after seeing my divorce lawyer. I needed a place to chill, rest. I chose the right place. unfortunately, there was no television to watch, apart from this glring ommission, it was a great short break.

Stay on the 2nd or 3rd floor as 1st floor is noisier and rooms have no view. All the rooms are really interesting so it's best to book as a group and spend time taking in the uniqueness of each room. Loved the complimentary drink on arrival.

Interesting decor in the rooms, and the the staff were very helpful. However for a business traveller, the internet was too poor and the quality of the TV was very poor. There is no breakfast, and I tried to have breakfast in the cafe that the hotel recommended, the R-Caffe, but walked out after the horrific service.

Nice rooms (every room is unique). Not big, but clean and everything you need. Staff is very helpful with things to do. Location is on Longstreet, in the middle of the center. The hotel has a bar and a nice place to sit outside, with view on the busy street. The beds are a bit short for tall people, but...

We were looking forward to a stay in Long Street at this highly advertised establishment. We were placed in a room on the second floor which was clean and neat but so small that it could only fit one chair. So you could not sit anywhere comfortably. The staff were really welcoming but the hype regarding this hotel did not...

This is a unique place to stay and great if you're on a budget. The rooms were clean and the staff really helpful and friendly. It's in a prime location in the city centre which is really buzzing in the evening with bars and restaurants. The rooms are quite small, but for backpackers on a budget this quirky place is...
