The rooms are spacious and feature original brick and stone walls, contemporary details and rich furnishings. Amenities include minibars, safes, TVs, hair dryers, free Wi-Fi and en suite bathrooms; some with Jacuzzi baths. Most offer a king sized bed, but there are twin double bed options also available.
