We stayed here for the location as next to some good restaurants and being in a nice neighbourhood. We enjoyed eating in the area- pok pok. Artigiano, salt and straw.
We chose the cheapest room. It's quite stuffy and basic but was fine for our purposes. Didn't get disturbed by noise above- would have been more convenient if toilet on same floor. Also no wifi from our room.
We spent little time in there enjoying the terrace and sitting rooms instead. Great to have kitchen to supplement breakfast and to store wine.
I liked it but my husband felt uncomfortable with having to use the shared facilities on another floor . For the location, I preferred this to a soulless motel even with shared facilities- and was about same price.
Breakfast ok but would have preferred better orange juice, some bread rather than just pastries and milk rather than just half & half. We bought from the grocery on Hawthorne to supplement what was there.
Useful to be able to do laundry there too.
Not sure if would return- probably would prefer to spend more in a similar location.
