A thin veneer of hipster sprayed over a tired old hotel doesn’t really compensate. And while I know it is the modern way - at $640 per night an outrageous gouging for a hotel room worth about ⅓ of that. Stained tiles and grout, crappy plaster repairs, old noisy aircon, running cistern, wobbly TV Panels - bleagh. Well equipped room, great view, good internet.

This hotel has a great quirky vibe created by its contemporary decor with a politically historical theme. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
