When we stayed at life hotel it had only been open a few weeks. It looks very stylish on the website and it is certainly a cool place. However there are some problems which will hopefully get ironed out over the forthcoming months.
One thing that won't change is that the hotel is close to a busy railway line, so make
sure you ask for a sea view, which will be on the other side of the hotel - otherwise it's quite noisy.
Our first room was very small with a round bed, which looked chic but not practical for 2
people. We asked to move and to be fair we got a better bigger room which was generally a massive improvement but that bed had a VERY hard mattress which neither of us found comfortable - a strange choice. Another constant annoyance was that the room was
either too cold or too hot, you can't control the temperature/air con yourself and have to keep phoning reception and it was frustrating situation, especially at night as you cant leave windows open because of mosquitos. The tv stopped working twice and I had to phone reception to get them to come and fix it, there is some bug in the system there.
Our experience in the restuarant was extremely inconsistent, we had a few very nice meals and some rather bad ones where the food tasted like it had been prepared
earlier then quickly half heated up. Same with the service, up and down. The Breakfast selection is quite limited and some items are not being topped up when they run out.
On a positive note the staff at life hotel are very friendly, courteous and helpful. There is also free wireless and use of bicycles.
I don't like writing negative things when the people are nice but maybe they'll read this and address the various issues, as I said before, it's early days for Life Hotel
