Comfortable hotel on trendy Darby street.
Very pleasant stay in a convenient location. We were in a one bedroom apartment, which was very spacious and comfortable, although we had to carry our bags up two flights of stairs to access it. The surrounding area is spoilt for choice with restaurants and cafes, and although Saturday evening was noisy early on, by 9.30 all was fairly quiet. Although our apartment fronted onto a busy road, the doors shut out most noise.
