That there's a hippopotamus theme to the decor says a lot about the quirkiness of this art-filled hotel. In the hotel wing, black lifts open on to darkened corridors leading to flamboyantly decorated rooms. The apartment wing is marginally more restrained but equally luxurious, and the units have kitchenettes and laundry facilities.
