The retro chic décor is Moroccan and French inspired with crimson walls and paisley wallpaper, along with brightly coloured cushions and rugs. Decorative objects give the room a cosy homely feeling; we felt at home right away in this pleasant open space.
Every one of its 57 rooms has a balcony, some look out onto the street and others onto the small central courtyard that acts like a passage between restaurants. The courtyard tends to be calm, but if you like your privacy, then it is best to ask for a room as high up as possible.
The extremely well-appointed rooms look more like flats than like hotel rooms, which has something to do with the fact that the hotel was originally designed to be condos. Each flat has an open-plan kitchen with a long lean bar running towards the living area, which has a bohemian lived-in feel that puts guests at ease right away. The bedroom area is sectioned off by a large chest of drawers, where the television sits beside a retro-looking record player - each room also has a small selection of records. The bedroom area is just as cosy as the rest of the flat, with an extremely comfortable king size four-poster bed. The bathroom is located just off the bedroom area, and is equipped with a shower and separate loo (all rooms have showers instead of bath tubs). The bathroom products are not branded.
An extra bonus for guests needing to wash their clothes, is the washing machine/dryer hidden away in a full-length cupboard, which is free to use. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a four-hob stove, microwave, utensils, and a tea/coffee machine with capsules.
With regards to connectivity, Wi-Fi in the rooms was not working during our visit. Both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections come at an extra charge.
