Such a special special special place. Gorgeous interior design and so my heart and thoughtfulness in the rooms. Super cool overall hospitality concept. Every detail was thorough and perfectly placed. Luxe without feeling stuffy. Lived in and homey while still being organized and subtle. Neighborhood was great and the in room guide was like your best friend giving the “lokal” scoop on where to go/eat/see. Couldn’t have been happier…unless an elevator could be added for carrying my kiddos belongings up the narrow and steep stairs. All part of the period-appropriate charm!

I love the whole "self check-in" option. I received all the info needed to access the building and room ahead of time and getting in was no problem. The "room" is bright, airy, and spacious; a cute studio apartment basically. We only stayed a night but it has everything you'd need for a longer stay, including a W/D. Located in a great part of town, with parking and lots of places to eat within walking distance. Would definitely stay again!
