“Nothing special about it.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Just a house. Yeah, it's kind of beautiful but there's nothing else to look at or to do anything. Thats all I can say. Just not bad, but nothing else.

“Fantastical Architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

This building is definitely worth visiting! The fantastical gargoyles, animals and other ornamentation on the outside are incredible on their own, but if you are lucky enough to get a tour of the inside of the building, you will be truly amazed at the imagination this architect had- simply phenomenal!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Stayed in a hotel only 5 minutes walk away so decided to pop along and have a look for myself. What an amazing and beautiful building, adorned with all manner of animals and set in a beautiful street too. A must see!

“Mind-boggling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

A totally bizarre, utterly bonkers building - a Marmite construction that is so profoundly ugly that it is bewilderingly beautiful to my eyes. You will either love it or hate it. But it is certainly original, and, once seen, never forgotten.

“See it if you had a chance..but dont expect much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

I was really excited about this place and it was a bit of let down for me. Sculpters are really good and interesting thats for sure but there is nothing else to see it took like 5 minutes to check everthing and leave the place because you cannot enter inside.

However, its really close the center of the city and still a must-see for people who are walking around. But if you have to travel some distance to see this place, I dont recommend to you to bother.
