This place is honestly like a jail cell. First the access to our room was out of the main building down multiple fire exit stairs that made you feel like you were going down in to a dungeon. Pair that with some large luggage bags and it’s just ludicrous that they are even allowed to utilise that space. Our bed was on the floor with sandpaper pillows/sheets and the bathroom with a thin see through glass screen that was so small with no space to put any of your things on the basin. And the tiles were absolutely filthy. Then when we went to have a shower, it flooded our room as the drain was blocked and also no door on the shower so it went straight in to the room. We then got “upgraded” after going to reception and explaining the situation. Slightly bigger room, still feeling like a jail which had completely empty shampoo and body wash bottles in the shower. So when the staff say check in is 3pm to make the rooms of the highest standards for their guests, they really couldn’t care less. Massive money making scheme this hotel and I would rather stay in a hostel any day. Worst hotel by far across our whole of Europe travels and somehow one of the most expensive (we are at the end of our month long Europe trip). Other places are much more welcoming and convenient with making your stay as nice as possible and have many nice touches that help that, highly recommend passing on this money maker!!

The concept is intriguing. The rooms are effectively minimal and the beautiful lighting adds a "zen like" atmosphere that is very captivating. However, service is also minimal. I stayed for a week and they didn't bother to clean my room twice. I'm attaching pictures so you can see. You just feel like you are in a dormitory with no customer service at all. My bathroom sink fell apart every day and despite talking to the multitude of vaguely lost staff at the entrance several times, they never sorted it out. In a genius design move the light switch and power plugs are right behind your pillows so you can expect to wake up several times at night for hitting the light switch or having your phone under your face. It's insane how anyone thinks that's a normal place for sockets. Last, but not least, there is an insane stripper bar called coyote ugly located in the building and I have gone to sleep with banging loud music every night. There is NO noise insulation, it's a farce. It's a shame because with the right management this could be a special place. Definitely not recommend
