Actually lovely rooms with beautiful interieur. But the neverending music (till 3 AM) from the bar drives you crazy at one point. This hotel is maybe suitable for party people who just stay in the room for a short while – everyone who want to relax, better stay away.

Hi Julietta T, Thank you for your feedback. I am very pleased that you enjoyed the boutique features of your room. I do sincerely apologize that the music affected your stay here.

I booked a room here for a night in the city for my husbands 30th birthday. We were going to a gig at the Metro and it was within walking distance.

No-one at Reception to check me in despite a pre-arrival phone call to confirm arrival. No parking onsite which meant I had to walk from public parking station to accommodation.

Had a recent one night stay at Hotel Harry. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised after reading so many of the negative reviews.

I like this hotel for a very original design. I dont even mind the noisy weekend as everyone is well informed about it. What I dont like are the photos posted on booking sites to mislead you.
