to do is lug it all the way up a steep flight of stairs. At the top yu may be greeted by someone, or they may continue looking at their PC screen. The atmosphere is very sterile and the aura of a hostel, which is what it was, still hangs around. I don't like sharing bathrooms (fussy fussy) so I booked one of the few rooms with an "ensuite". This turned out to be a stainless steel sink atteched to one wall in the bedroom, and a loo and shower hidden behind a heavy sliding door. I've stayed in a number of 'design' hotels around the world, and I'm afraid the Ace is the only one I've found where style triumphs mightily over comfort. I checked out the next day (and got hassled about not staying the three nights I'd booked) and went up town to the Alexis. Only good thing about the Ace is that it's cheap. Ish
Quite close to town, and in a funky area including the world's first web cafe.
