Staid here one night with work colleagues.
My room was on the inside of the building. It was removed from the nosie of the surrounding streets and looked out onto the internal courtyard which is quite nice. However a group was sitting in their smoking. They could see straight into my room so I had NO PRIVACY and had to draw the blinds. I was booked into a non smoking room. Unfortunately it smelt of smoke.
Unfortunately 1 of my colleagues had a room on the ground floor on the outside of the building. This was definately not noise free! Sirens, rubbish trucks, passing traffic and drunk people passing by have loud conversations... throughout the night.... subsequently she had little sleep.
It is an old building in a good location. The owners have done some interesting things to funk it up.
Rooms are a reasonable size. Plenty of hot water. Nice and clean.
Like most old buildings you can hear the water pipes in action in the bathroom. Recommend sleeping with the bathroom door closed.
Internet available for $10/day.
Breakfast available from 8 am so not great for business travellers. Cafe looked fantastic, nice design.
No iron in your room. One per floor.
