This was a strange hotel experience. The entrance, dining room, service and stairways were fabulous, if quirky. The location, on the edge of the gay district, was most entertaining, especially the next door shop window. (Not for the stuffy or narrow-minded.) And only a 10 minute walk from the Dom and the heart of the city.
But the rooms? Hmm. You get what you pay for and these prices were on the economy scale. The windows didn't shut very well, the gutters were broken so the rainwater noise was a bit loud and the paper thin toilet door leaves nothing to the imagination. The beds were way too soft and no mini bar and the curtains and fitting were in need of a little TLC.
Okay, for those less picky or business travellers but not for a romantic getaway.
