Given the eminently reasonable room rates, the trendy swishness of the public areas in this amiable budget hotel comes as a pleasant surprise. You’re treated to Philippe Starck chairs, mirrored chests and a huge New York skyline in the lounge; more stylish embellishments in the halls and tasteful, neutral tones in the well-equipped bedrooms. Recent improvements have given guests flatscreen televisions, as well as the wherewithal for hot drinks in their rooms, plus new showers and toilets in the snug bathrooms.
