55 rooms for us is the perfect size for this type of hotel. They are spread over seven floors meaning that with a relatively small number of each floor, intimacy and discretion is afforded. There are several categories to choose from which are differentiated by height up the building, presence of a balcony and view (either of Kenmare/Elizabeth Street or the cityscape). All rooms boast hardwood oak floors, Venetian plaster walls and exposed concrete columns and ceilings, giving a true industrial loft feeling which is typical of the neighbourhood. All bathrooms are open plan (although there are curtains around the showers for privacy) and the large picture/floor-to-ceiling windows ensure abundant natural light. The standard size rooms (which are available at every level of the hotel, with or without balcony) are admittedly a little pokey, however you'll forgive this flaw when you consider the design and amenities. They have queen or king beds dressed smartly with 300-count sateen linens and a vibrant red plaid. The solid wooden bed frame has storage space within it while the bedside tables house an iPod compatible radio alarm clock, telephone and snack tray. The room features too a long wooden work space with that classic DSW chair by the Eames brothers as well as another, more comfy looking armchair. Other amenities in the room include a wall-mounted flatscreen television, safe, minibar, umbrella and bathrobes and slippers. The open plan bathroom comprises a long, white vanity with sleek fittings, Red Flower toiletries and make-up mirror. There is a large walk-in monsoon peekaboo shower and the loo is separate.
For a tad more space go for a corner room with its floor-to-ceiling windows and separate monsoon shower and free-standing egg-shaped bathtub which looks out onto the city. However, for the ultimate in luxury city living, opt for the Nolitan Suite which boasts a separate living space, Zepplin sound system, iPad, extra furniture pieces with art, decorative objets and books and a glass-walled bathroom with separate tub and shower.
Guests in all rooms are offered an unpacking service as well as a Wii, Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 upon request.
