CHARACTER & STYLE
Housed in a sleek black box of a facade, it's obvious there's no history to be found within this building's clean-lined walls. Instead, you'll find brightly-coloured upholstery, shiny floors, neon lights and amusing pop art on the walls. The bar has exposed pipework and de rigueur bare tungsten bulbs.
Service is from an enthusiastic young team and there's a plethora of amenities here, from a swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna to the 24-hour gym decked out with the latest gadgets and equipment, a spin studio and a full range of classes. Guests will find a co-working space in the business centre.
