“funky design yet comfortable & practical”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Like others I found the location of this hotel to be perfect to easily explore the city, just a short walk to the action, yet in a quiet street. We had a standard room, which was larger than you would find in many other hotels. The bed was super king size & very comfortable. Not only is the hotel stylishly designed it is well thought out in terms of comfort & practicality. There is plenty of storage space, the power points are conveniently located and rooms are equipped with a decent hairdryer. The bathroom has plenty of towel rails and gorgeous citrus scented toiletries. Staff were very friendly & helpful and the whole 6 nights were very easy & relaxed.

We had one of the Suites in the hotel which were very comfortable and modern with a good size living/lounge room as well as a bedroom area. The service was great in the hotel and everyone was very friendly. The breakfast offering was quite limited though with not as much variety as we had in another hotel we stayed at in Malaga. Also we had to wait 40mins before they cooked more scrambled eggs to put out in the buffet so as each guest came down for breakfast they asked for eggs and were told 5 minutes (breakfast service on our first day did not have this problem). Also whilst the Suite we stayed in was a fantastic room which we enjoyed, the floorplan of the hotel leaves a lot to be desired as the door to the Maid/Cleaning cupboard is right next to the Suite door. This means from a VERY early time in the morning you will have someone right outside your door preparing their trolley and all cleaning items getting ready for servicing the rooms. So for light sleepers like us this was not ideal and strange to have this right next to the more expensive suite on each floor. Aside from the poor breakfast on one of the mornings, the noise from the maid outside our door each morning was the only thing we had issue with. Otherwise the hotel was a pleasure to stay at and this is a chain I’d consider staying at again.
It's in a good location 5mins walk to the main pedestrian shopping streets, 10mins walk to the waterfront shops and restaurants, 20mins walk to the beach.

Room Tip: The suites are lovely, however are next to the elevators, stairs, and maid cleaning cupboard so not...

Had a great couple of nights in August. Air con. Close to shops and Botanical Gardens. Stylish design but lacking bar and restaurant. Easy to find with good access to rail and bus network. Good value, very clean and lovely bathroom.

First the GOOD:
The price is good for two people sharing,
The room is nice and clean
The location is good
Free Wifi
Beds are comfortable.
Staff are friendly and helpful
Free coffee in the lobby

Now the BAD:
When we arrived in the afternoon, our rooms were not ready.
The wifi is ridiculously slow
The blinds/curtains are in such a way that it does not keep out the light
The air conditioning did not work sufficiently to keep the room cool.

If you are looking for a place that is central, and not expesive. Comfortable and not planning in spending lots of time in the room, then this will be worth a visit.
