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 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, uncovered wood floors); some, at the top, have ‘wonderful views’ of the river or city landmarks. The restaurant is the place for ‘delicious’ modern British dishes using regional produce; in the bar: informal fare and made-to-order cocktails. The cooked dishes, at breakfast, ‘are generous’ (the continental selection, perhaps, less so).
This hotel accepts room upgrade vouchers which entitle readers to a space available room upgrade. The voucher must be presented at check-in and is entirely at the hotelier’s discretion.
