Elle Magazine

'My modern-rustic private room has crisp white sheets, an en-suite with one of the best showers I've ever had, and a panoramic view of the city in all its glory.'


'Inside, the décor is industrial modern - Ikea with Attitude - and the front-desk staff all look like they DJ or design jewellery in their spare time.'
