Good Hotel Guide Review
In the buzzing heart of the city, opposite the Philharmonic Hall, a Venetian palazzo facade conceals this contemporary hotel, ‘ideally placed’ for discovering the city’s wonderful history and architecture. The former carriage works’ ‘airy, modern’ public spaces have a stripped-back style, all exposed brick walls, vintage metal supports and old beams. Varying in size, Scandi-minimalist bedrooms (white walls, birch floors, cherry wood furniture); some, at the top, have ‘wonderful views’ of the river or city landmarks. Further extension brings more rooms, together with a spa, pool and cinema. The restaurant is the place for ‘delicious’ modern British dishes using regional produce; in the bar, informal fare and made-to-order cocktails.
