Fodor's Review

You'll need to climb a narrow, nondescript staircase to discover this small, funky hotel that doubles as an art gallery: the hallways and rooms have been transformed by international artists who painted splashy murals and installed site-specific small sculptures. The exhibited art is rotated constantly, so you can let serendipity be your guide. If you're looking for a cool souvenir of your stay, some small paintings are available for purchase. The staff serves a minimal

Continental breakfast that will leave most hungry. For the best rates, you have to book for seven nights.
