As many have already stated this is a former barracks and as such there is not much any one could do to change the layout. Our room was of a decent size and very clean. The bed was of a reasonable size (king) but too soft for my preference and the quilt was for a double bed which was interesting. Towels and robes were of good quality and there were plenty of toiletries. The floor is of striped floorboards and the furniture boutique modern. There is no bath just a rain fall shower head and a hand held spray in a two door cubicle. The dining room is to the right of reception and very open plan but with the tables close to each other. The hotel indicates that is for social dining. I presume so guests can chat to each other. Not my preference. Honestly there is nothing wrong with the the hotel but I consider that it has an upmarket hostel feel to it. Also I do consider that some staff on reception could improve their customer service skills and were not that helpful on arrival. However those on duty when we checked out were very gracious. We dined at the hotel twice and the food, service and wine was very good. Breakfast which was included was also very good with plenty of choice and of excellent quality. What was annoying was the strong stale smells of cooking on the second floor in the corridor. This was off putting. The hotel location is very quiet with absolutely no traffic noise of a modern city. If boutique small hotels in quiet locations within walking distance to the centre are your thing then you should consider this very seriously.
