Reviewed yesterday NEW

The elevator is too old and the sound it noisy when it is moving. The bath room is too small and water tap is hard to use. Living room is small and not suitable for two persons. The bottle of the water is cost of 3USD and that is shall be free, and the room is not valuable for USD280/...

Whilst there are some nice touches, the hotel doesn't seem to be in the same state or quality it maybe once was. I did expect more for the price I paid. The wifi wasn't working the day I arrived although this maybe couldn't be helped.

Hi H35665Gclaiec, So sorry about the wifi, yes we did have an outage for about a 1/2 day that was out of our control. I am also sorry you were not impressed with the quality of the hotel. We recently renovated and are working on improving the exterior. Our design of mid century architect meets old school tech, with masculine...

Hotel is a nice diversion from the ordinary chain hotels. Staff is attentive and seems to try very hard and the facility is clean and reliable. Other reviews talk about it being "stylish" but my impression is an updated, clean, decent hotel.

As said there were very limited internet during the whole stay, and the shuttle bus service was out of order. Otherwise rooms are ok, breakfast ok (bakeries very a bit old, not fresh) I liked the intimacy but not the services which should be included, but in reality they were not.

Hello 624zsusannam, I'm so sorry that while you were here the hotel experienced an Internet outage for about 16 hours. We truly apologize for the situation that was out of our control.

Factors most important to me during a hotel stay are cleanliness, a comfortable bed, good hot shower and friendly service. Above all the great things about this hotel is the staff/service. Nathan and Amanda checked me in (even though I had arrived very early for check in) during my last stay and were extremely pleasant and welcoming. I usually see...

There is nothing better than getting away with the family and having a hotel fill all your needs. I am so happy the team did just that for you and more. We are going to add even more games to the pool area for the summer, so you need to return to check them out. See you soon and thanks...

This hotel looked like an old 70s building from the outside but inside it's a charmer! Friendly, clean and unique. Beds are comfortable with soft sheets. I can't remember ever sleeping so soundly at a hotel. They have a black out shade for night.

We are unique, aren't we, and we love it. The hotel was built in the 80's, so you were close in its age. We can't redo the building, but we can make the inside, cool, clean, fun and give amazing service and that is what we aim to do, each and every single day. I'm glad we nailed it for...
