CHARACTER & STYLE
The feel is that of a members' club: classy black-on-grey colours, dimly lit walls, lacquered doors, thick carpets, velvet-upholstered chairs and a shiny-topped bar. Rows of silver-framed black-and-white photographs - fashion shoots and iconic film and music stars - line every conceivable wall while even lampshades are black.
There's a small library, with black and grey sofas, as well as the lounge-bar in which to relax, plus, on warmer days, a street-side terrace set with tables and chairs.
- Free Wi-Fi
Blacks and greys continue in the bedrooms, although here they contrast with bedheads and crsip linen. Mirror-panelled wardrobe doors cleverly add light while decoration is restrained - think chrome lamps, Bakelite telephones and more black-and-white photographs. Bathrooms are sleek with marble fittings.
