Very contemporary in a location that is fun and unique and close to historic sights. Has a wonderful rooftop for viewing with tables. Staff is a lot of fun and lives up to its reputation. This place is not good for handicapped people and even though I was in a wonderful room there were no drawers for belongings or desk for writing. I was shocked that this place had washed clothes available. I stayed in the room with the queen bed and jacuzzi. The bed was so comfortable I had no trouble sleeping here.

This place is in the most prime area. Easy to walk to all the sites and unlimited selection of food and drinks nearby. The only reason I’m docking a point is the noise. We stayed on weekdays, but could hear drunks until 4 am easily. Which is unfortunate when you’ve got early morning bookings and flights. We kept thinking the windows were open, but they were sealed shut.
