I've been wanting to stay at this place for a long time, and finally managed to have a visit over the weekend. We asked for a room not on the street (noise) and were booked in number 2. Basically, the room was small, which is FINE. But it faced a noisy generator and the room was boiling hot. The heating was not on so we assume it was related to something outside or over the kitchen. (When I checked out I was told this had never come up, which my partner and I found stunning; it was stuffy and boiling and cool outside!) My main complaint is that the room was very sub-standard. If they had taken the time to make the room feel well cared for - extra nice bedding, a comfy bed (not one with springs sticking into my ribs), decent shower products - then I can overlook the other issues. Instead it was a big dingy and felt like staying in a hostel. for those who don't mind this is fine, but for those who feel spending $140 for a night is a lot, this will feel like a bit of a rip-off (and a bit depressing). The best point of course, is the location - walking out on to Portobello market on a saturday; and the continental breakfast was very nice and the staff very chill and relaxed.
