We found this hotel through Tripadvisor and booked a renovated room for 3 nights. As I read the reviews, we were well aware of some ongoing renovations, but these didn't bother us at all during our stay.
The room was exactly as expected, with its retro design features. But although it was only renovated a few months ago, some furniture pieces (desk chair, desk drawer, shower arm...) already showed some minor defects. The bed, on the other hand, was wonderful, so the jetlag was soon forgotten.
The reception was really helpful when inquiring about the restaurants in the neighbourhood. In the morning you could start the day with some freshly served coffee or tea in the lobby, while watching a Hitchcock classic on the flat screen TV.
We thought the hotel had a really relaxed and offbeat feel, similar to the city and that was what we were looking for!
