This hotel was great. We stayed for a birthday occasion for one night only. To be honest we were barely in the hotel room as we were shopping, seeing shows etc. We turned up 5 hours before check in which was not a problem to the hotel at all, they took our bags and off we went to enjoy our day. Returning at 8pm later that day we went into our room. Our room was clean, tidy, stylish and quirky. We chose a room without a window which i was slightly nervous about sleeping in as i know rooms can get warm but it was not an issue at all because the air conditioning was quick and effective. Being an art & design student, the deco in the room and hotel fascinated me. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was clean and lovely, shower was powerful, beds were soooo comfy and the light switch at the side of the bed was great and very handy. The only thing i would complain about is the sliding door to the bathroom. It was really stiff and first of all we thought that it didn't close however we found out it did last minute. All in all, this hotel was brilliant and a brilliant value for money especially considering the location!
