To be fair, this hotel was so new, we couldn't track on our GPS or the address we had from booking.com was different than the one listed here on tripadvisor. Anyhow, the parking lot is at the back of the hotel and the check-out wicket of the parking lot is on a steep hill. Not well designed for automobiles. I don't know if the entrance and exit could be reversed or that would create traffic problems but it was not easy stopping on the steep hill for foreigners driving standard,
The other interesting part of the entrance was the steps down which had a teeny ramp for narrow suitcases. There was a major ramp to the entrance that seemed less obvious than the stairs so we did watch a few people struggle down the stairs with their suitcases.
Once inside, the energy is palpable. This is fun and friendly place to stay. staff were really helpful. Check-in and check-out is self serve. Once your credit card is registered you get a key-card that you activate. You need to scan the key in the elevator for security reasons to activate the elevator to get to your floor. The only thing was we didn't know that, and called maintenance because the elevator didn't work. It's always easy when you know!
The Samsung tablet in the room greets you by name. You use this to open and close the blinds and curtains as well as select mood music by theme, e.g. business, party, relax. The bed is very large and comfortable and the duvet was the perfect weight. The tablet can also set your wake up alarm to gentle, gradual, medium, or heard of elephants.
The room decor is crisp, clean, and stylish. The room is not too big but has everything you need. Shower is rainfall style.
There is a 24/7 canteen. We ate there at night and at breakfast. The food was adequate; the wine was good. They have a cocktail menu so we tried a mojito and margarita for fun. Perhaps, as North American's, we like our cocktails a little sweeter but both of us were disappointed in our drinks.
There are three inside sitting areas on the main floor all designed to make you feel like you are in your living room; that is, if your living room is designed by a trendy, chic individual. I loved it. I loved looking at the coffee table books and the artwork and the people checking in. There were also four Macs fou our use and wifi. You could print for free from the Macs. Good for boarding passes!
The price for the room was really good but there was a tax that was added to the bill at check-out. When I travel again, i will be on the lookout for CitizenM hotels. i haven't stopped talking about it.
