This unique spot has uniquely themed rooms, such as a karaoke room and a cartoon-decorated room. You don't really have a spot to put your bags, but it's interesting here. The apartments are chic and are located at 263 Long Street.

      The staff was very nice and helpful, in addition to offering a welcome drink on the balcony facing Long St, they took our clothes to the dry-cleaner and stored it in their office for a week (while we were gone doing the Garden Route). They also changed our rooms so that we got to see a couple of the fab rooms in the hotel.

      Very central location, cool decor in room, very reasonable price. Friendly staff too.

      Room was fairly small and we did not appreciate the see-through door in the ensuite bathroom! Hotel was quite noisy- not from outside/street but music was played downstairs early and could hear people on the stairs during the night.
