Well placed, close to the centre. Clean comfortable, stylish rooms, nice shower room. Shower has saloon style doors, so don't book if you are shy. Booked in for 1 night but extended to 2 as it was so nice. All reception staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms contain everything you need for a short stay. Very good value for money.

I loved this beautiful modern small hotel. Everything was spotless. The hotel is close to the centre and the night market, close to Jonker Street. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate. To be picky on the down side the rooms had no blinds so they were very light very early in the morning, my patner and I...

Close to all the tourist attractions. Good breakfast and the staff could not be more helpful. We were there on the weekend of Deepavali and could not get a taxi back to catch our bus and the lovely Ain on the front desk drove us. I had originally booked the most expensive room but changed it after reading Peter H's...

The best thing about the hotel is the location: it's just around the corner from the famous Jonker Street night market. My room was quite small but luckily didn't face the street, so I wasn't disturbed by traffic noise in the middle of the night. Everything you need is there: a safe, a cupboard, a kettle, towels and toiletries; wi-fi...

The hotel is just beside jonker street. Clean and value for money. Breakfast was surprising decent. Perhaps after many previous complaints, some of the items were kept hot throughout the breakfast session. However, in the middle of the night, the trishaw riders will blast their speakers as the come through the streets

We booked the room with the river view balcony off-season. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet exceeded my expectations for a boutique hotel. The hotel was an old Dutch style building (similar to the Heeren street museums). The only bad thing was that the traffic outside the balcony was noisy and woke us up too early on...
