A new hotel in a sense that's it's still under construction. Noise is minimal but there will be workmen and the reception area looks half-finished (in case that bothers you).
Oh yes, and there is no receptionist - call a number which obviously means you're left hanging around for a while. Payment was difficult, again waiting for someone to turn up. There were also a lot of people hanging around in reception area who didn't have rooms as the hotel has doubled-booked. Reading the reviews it seems that this is a particular problem for this hotel.
On the main street so centrally located for everything but bit noisy at night. The gift shop below is a particular problem - their music is so loud don't plan on staying in bed after 8.30.
The decor is made out of recycled stuff which is jazzed up by the now ubiquitous fashion for infantile drawings. It's twee: you'll either love it or hate it.
The bathroom is particularly nice and nice to have a kitchen and a fridge. We used sofa bed which is not made up prior to arrival: a bag of crumpled laundry will be provided and you get on with it.
Nice concept, but still a few things they have to work out.
