Each well-appointed unit features its own fully equipped kitchenette complete with a refrigerator, dishwasher and countertop cooking hob as well as a workspace and comfortable living area.

Guests can start the day with a daily complimentary breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant, as well as have flexibility of access to the common kitchen, fully equipped with a coffee machine, oven and grill, perfect for quick snacks and wholesome meals throughout the day. In addition, the hotel hosts The Social, the brand’s signature event, three times a week, creating an informal gathering for guests to relax and enjoy complimentary bites and drinks while engaging with other guests staying at the hotel.
