Stayed a couple of days here and the suite we were assigned to was not only very roomy with a nice reading area but it was also full of old-world charm. From the exquisite chinoiserie to the netted 4-poster bed, this place almost transports you back in time. But don't be fooled. It has modern amenities like flat screen TV's, split AC's and even a rain shower in the bathroom!
There is an art gallery next to our accommodation as well as a coffee museum out back. It housed an old roaster used back in the day.
The location is great, with the Camera Museum and a few restaurants just a short walk from the hotel. If you fancy a couple of pints, there's Tipsy Tiger across the street to accommodate you. It can get noisy in the evening though so just close your windows if your suite happens to face this party hostel.
Ruby from the cafe/restaurant who greeted us when we arrived was especially helpful. She gave us great advice on places to go, places to eat, places to shop! Actually, all of the staff were very friendly and always wore a smile. Wouldn't think twice about staying here again.
