The hotel does look exactly like the photos you see online, and it's only around two years old, but it appears that it was constructed and decorated with the cheapest material possible. After two years of use, the hotel is completely worn down and falling apart.
The prices are good enough -- we paid around $35 USD per night for a queen room with an en suite bathroom and a window. The location is great and the hotel is trying for a cute boutique feel, but it just isn't executed very well.
The rooms are super tiny, which isn't actually a deal breaker for me, but it really seems like everything in the hotel is broken.
In our first room (room 302), EVERYTHING was broken -- the shower head was dangling by the hose and couldn't be mounted to the wall, the bathroom fan was missing parts, the lock on the door was ripped off as though someone had kicked the door in, the curtains we falling off the rails, the hot water heater was missing the handle so that it couldn't be turned on or controlled... All of it was broken.
The room was also dirty -- the drinking glasses looked like they hadn't been washed and there was a stain on the sheets.
We had to ask to change rooms because it was impossible to even consider staying in that room.
In the second room we were given (room 402), the room was dank and stunk of mildew. The bathroom never dried after we showered and the temperature control on the hot water heater was broken so we couldn't change the temp -- it was a choice between a cold shower or a scalding hot shower.
Also, the power box/breaker box buzzed all night long and the rooms are not adequately soundproofed, so we could hear all of the noise from the street (especially the train and cars honking) and the people in the hallway.
We stayed at Hotel 1915 for three nights (July 15th through July 18th, 2014) and never once did house keeping come to tidy up the room or replace the towels.
Also, there is no in-room hair dryer, no toiletries, no hot water kettle for tea and coffee, etc... There are communal water stations in the hallways and that's it.
On the upside, the location is really, really great and the wifi worked well. For the price, however, I don't think I would stay here again. There are just too many options and the hotel is in too much disrepair.
