Highs & Lows

  • We stayed in one of the hotel’s loft rooms: open, high-ceilinged duplexes that feel very welcoming and comfortable. It was more like staying at your friend’s apartment that has really good taste.

  • The staff is super friendly but not overbearing. They remember your order preferences and bring you cookies with the turndown service.

  • A few of the rooms (including the lofts) have a separate street entrance so it really feels like you’re staying in an apartment.

  • The pool was small but lovely and surrounded by interesting and lush vegetation. The garden is a delight in itself and we’d have breakfast out there every morning.

  • Not unusual, but they’re very strict about their check out times.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Eco-friendly boutique hotel.

  • Vibe

    Relaxed, comfortable, well-designed. There are hints of Scandinavia and France in the furniture and wild wallpaper.

  • Location

    In the Palermo neighborhood, very central. Walking distance to great food and bars and a quick cab ride to the sights you want to see.

  • Rooms

    20 rooms

  • Music

    An odd mix of Nicolas Jaar, Beirut, Morrissey and some other quiet, hip bands.

  • Year Opened

    2003

  • Designed By

    Not sure, but the owners Tom Rixton and Patricia O’Shea certainly have great taste.

  • Health & Wellness

    Very small but cute pool with lots of lounge chairs.

  • Restaurant

    Yes, great breakfast! Best staff!

  • Bar

    Yep, outside. Every morning this lovely woman makes flower arrangements here between bringing people coffees.

  • Minibar

    Beer and wine and some great little chocolate candy things.

  • Children

    Saw one baby making a beeline for the pool but the majority of the guests were 30+.

  • Price

    They have a few room options (singles to suites to lofts) so the hotel is amenable to a wider budget range. Starting at $205/night including tax.
