Fair 4.0
Very disappointed.
Our rooms (it took two tries to get one that wasn't extremely noisy) didn't look anything like the pictures. They are tiny, dark, and poorly appointed. The bed is almost on the floor, there was no coffee maker, the radio was like from the 1950s, the single chair was uncomfortable and unstable, and the "mini-bar" consisted of a tray of inedible snacks and two red bulls. (Really?) The bathroom was also small and dark. The place tries to have a cool vibe, but it didn't work for us. Disappointing.

Big Bang for the buck!
It was really clean, fantastic location! The breakfast was a bit underwhelming- for the price though I’m not complaining but if they had wiggle room to up the selection even in the slightest I’d be very happy! Overall, I’d stay here again. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable.

Boutique Hotel with a Unique Personality!
Freehand is a boutique hotel with an eclectic decor and very laid back energy, but with a big city vibe. Loved the use of space in the double bunk rooms, and appreciated the electrical outlets in each bunk post for our phones and tablets. The bar/lounge is very relaxed, with lots of custom cocktails should you so desire. HIGHLY recommend!
