Loved the hotel, staff is wonderful and the rooftop restaurant was gorgeous. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Walk anywhere from here. Decor is funky and cool. Very unique. Breakfast is delicious too.

Had a great stay. Rooms are clean and modern, breakfast was fantastic. Lobby area is spacious and there is free tea and coffee provided. Restaurant was mediocre but as the hotel is in the centre of town there are lots of options to eat nearby.
