We will definitely be back! This boutique hotel has delightful decor & attentive staff. The bed & pillows were very comfortable and the food is delicious. The deck is a lovely place to dine & the hotel is located on a quiet street. The rooftop bar is very cute & cosy, the perfect place to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink.

The Art Deco theme was just beautiful. Every little detail was thought of - from stylish magazines to browse, quiet areas, superb Asia-inspired cuisine, the rooftop, recycling, the front garden. Everything. Parking for invited guests was a problem.
