A bit like the bordello it once was, the place promises big things, especially at the beginning. The refurbished entry and living areas are superb – spacious, stylish and airy – though some of the rooms are a bit cramped and dated. To inflate your enthusiasm, numerous fun nooks and crannies are open for the taking and it's a generally satisfying experience for the price.

The friendly artist-owner 'Madame' promotes local talent; artworks prevail. Prices increase on weekends.
