Editorial review:

A stunning boutique hotel designed by Anouska Hempel, he combines white, neutral tones of Kyoto with the theme of 2001: A Space Odyssey. There are 42 rooms and studios that are lovely, comfortable and unique. One room contains a bed within a cage that is suspended above a living area. There is a lovely Japanese garden opposite that is truly an urban oasis.

            We did not like the hotel

            We did not like the run down acomodation it felt like 3rd world.

          • Couple
            5.8

            joel in the bar was excellent

            asked for a cheese plate when i entered the bar - as told it was 10.03 and the itchen was closed. duty manager was rude and "did me a favour" by convincing kitchen to spend 3 mins cutting cheese and putting on a plate. poor experience ensured i won't be booking for 2 days next week as planned. average service turns this from a cool hotel to a facade.

          • Older travelers
            5.0

            the bed was comfortable and the shower was good

            most of it! more like a 3* than a 5*; apparently cool and chic, in reality sparsely furnished with unmatching items, very poor finishes (in ceiling around light fittings, cheap cupboards and wardrobes, scuffs to shelves and cabinets, holes in window blinds ...). no warmth about the hotel at all. did not enjoy the idea of coming back to it after our evening out.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Very convenient location.....liked the modern/contemporary style of hotel...

            Was quite expensive and i think the rooms need updating a bit.

          • Couple
            10.0

            the clean design; the tranquility of both hotel and location

          • Couple
            4.2

            Location is good.

            What can I say, typically London: overpriced. Noisy, small rooms, a wall in front of the window, bathroom not heated, and the staff not professional.
