A very charming and accommodating place to stay.walkable to lots of places for everyone’s needs. Clean and guilt. The record player was a nice touch. Common ventilation system transmitted other room noises unfortunately we had quite a rambunctious person near by one night

The atmosphere was great and unique. We had a horrible sleep because the walls and floors were so thin we could hear every little thing.

Likes: - Wine bar is a hidden gem in the city. Ambiance was cozy and modern. - Decor in room is modern and original (e.g., record player is in the room). - Staff was very friendly and helpful. - Touchless check-in is a good idea in theory. Dislikes: - rooms aren't soundproofed for a a hotel in a vibrant neighborhood. - check-in was a little intrusive as someone followed up 3 times for information early in the day despite room not being available until later in the afternoon.
