CHARACTER & STYLE
This is a late Victorian building, and features like the high ceiling and tall windows remain, but there aren't too many other original features other than a bit of cornicing and the oak staircase. The building is set on a slope (like most in the Old Town), so the entrance floor is actually on the third floor.
Facilities include a lounge area with a free coffee machine, a self-service launderette (as well as chargable laundry service), a 24-hour gym and a digital concierge service. Scan the QR code to find out more on the restaurants, shops and attractions in the local area.
