If you're looking for a hotel that is not only situated close to the local restaurants and shopping district but is in walking distance of the marina, this should be the hotel of choice. Located on a small street that appears, at first glance, to be incapable of hosting a hotel the size of Stay Hotel, the front facade shows that this has been designed to be a modern and inviting hotel with a simple ethos: functionality over design.
The bedroom we stayed in was a moderate size with a comfortable bed and a small Juliette-style balcony overlooking the street. The air-conditioning can be quite loud which is problematic for those people who like silence to sleep and, on a summer's day, the trade-off between noise and cool air is a difficult one. I would have appreciated being able to reduce the temperature below the minimum of 16 degrees Celsius but this is a minor detail.
The breakfast on offer is a continental style breakfast with a range of cereals, pastries, coffee and juice on offer. A hotel of this size might have been able to extend its range further by offering a full breakfast but this might be more to do with the facilities on site.
If there is one criticism of the hotel, it is that the lift is extremely small for the number of guests staying at the hotel and does often take some time to arrive at your floor. For people with difficulty walking or with disabilities, this could pose a problem as there are no rooms on the ground floor and access to the next floor is only by a narrow staircase covered by a fire door or by the lift.
