This is a gay hotel in the gay district, frequented by gay men. Nothing in their literature (ie the website) indicates this is the case. Given that check in is in an actual gay bar (and indeed have to fill in the details of your address card at the bar, where it can be viewed by any random drinker) this could be a bit of a problem. I would not have wanted to be checking in with a couple of kids in tow or a wife. Also many of the rooms including the one I stayed in are on the ground floor of a very busy street in the heart of the gay district. The first night I stayed there I didn't get to sleep until 5:30 in the morning because of hordes of drunken dimwits babbling outside my window, only feet away, as well as people running into and out of the building, banging on doors and screaming at each other. At night this whole area is like a vietnam of drunkeness and debauchery. If you are staying in one of the rooms i stayed in you will not get any sleep until the very early hours of the next morning, unless you are so drunk you virtually pass out. DO YOUR RESEARCH! If you're a gay man looking to party, fine. No-one else will want stay here.
