I am in two minds about the Americano.
The room is beautifully designed, but is not very practical. If you prefer to lie on the bed with your romantic partner staring at the funky furniture, no problem. If you need to move around the room, use the desk and have a good reading light (the lighting overall is atmospheric, rather than illuminating), then maybe this is not the hotel for you.
The light switches remained a mystery for the duration of our stay and a faulty bulb in the passage lading into the room remained broken for the duration of our stay (after we reported it on arrival).
We stayed in a Studio, which is a lot bigger than the standard room.
The bathroom has a miniscule basin, with almost no space around it for your toiletry bag or anything else.
The alcove containing the bed was beautiful and the bed very comfortable.
The rooftop bar and pool are very cool and fun and I think the hotel is ideal if you are a big socialiser. We aren’t. Apart from the bar on the roof there are a number of clubs in the area so it can get noisy at night.
There are also a lot of galleries around and the hotel is an ideal base from which to explore them and the HighLine (a feat of modern architecture and ingenuity) which is accessible from the streets on either side of the hotel. Other than that it was a bit out of the way for us.
There is nothing wrong with the Americano and my ambivalent review is more a reflection of my taste rather than the quality of the hotel. Special mention also goes to the Leila at the front desk who went far beyond the requirements of the job to help me out with something. Thank you again!
