We spent one night here. The property has interesting decor. We kind of enjoyed it. However, the room we had was damp and smelly. There was visible mold on the bathroom counter top. Definitely, not a 4 start as advertised on Expedia.

This is a lovely property in a good location with a good concept. The public spaces are nice, however the rooms badly need a refresh. The hotel seems to have been closed up without ventilation for a while and our room was damp. You could only open a door onto a terrace for light and air which you could not leave open at night. There was no cross ventilation unless you opened the door to the hallway. It needs ot be brought back to life.
