I was reading some of the reviews on other styles and what constantly keeps returning is the fact that this is a hotel which does things differently. Reviewers complain about the layout and design of the room, the use of an Apple iMac computer or the fact that is in the middle of town (neighbours, street noise -argh!-). All the facts I love about this hotel: it is certainly not everyone\'s cup of tea and neither is it the Hilton, and they are not trying to be. I found the room one of the best I ever seen: the bed, which is enormous is placed centrally in the room facing the window. It is high on a platform and me being quite tall literally had to climb in. I slept fantastically. Behind the bed is the open plan bathroom (only the toilet being closed off by a door) with the bath placed at the head of the bed. As the bed enormous, finally a bath I could fit in in a hotelroom. The shower was a walk-in with a rain shower head and good, powerful hot water. As an dedicated Apple user loved the iMac in-room computer and the iPod docking station. The computer doubles as a TV and entertainment centre, all working perfectly fine, including the free internet. For non-Apple users the hotel has a quick how-to-use lesson. Loved the bar downstairs with its high backed chair giving a very intimate feel. Good breakfast including Nespresso coffee. Indeed, this hotel may not be everybody\'s taste. And that is why I like it, it has attitude. The right attitude.
