Due to rooms being small, things like the bedside tables and the bathroom vanity etc were very small. We enjoyed the bar area and Monster restaurant.

They funky decor was really interesting - made for an atmospheric experience. The food was very good but not inexpensive. The room wasn’t large but it was comfortable.
