The comfortable king size bed was awash in soft white linens (which picked up the lighting system’s mood effectively and pleasantly). A headboard with storage and shelf space was behind the bed, which was flanked by small reading lamps and USB charging ports. While these are quite common on airliners and in cars today, I’ve never been to a hotel where I could plug a USB device directly into the wall, something very convenient when it came to charging my iPhone.

The bath area was equally sleek and modern, and Malin+Goetz soaps and shampoos were in ample supply.

ROAD WARRIOR SUPPORT

Gone was the Phillip Starck-designed clear molded plastic desk chair I found intolerable during my first stay, replaced by an ergonomic and comfortable desk chair that fit the décor perfectly. While the writing desk no longer glowed, it was nonetheless perfect for work.

The hotel’s complimentary Wi-Fi system was fast and I had no problems streaming videos and surfing the web, never encountering any lag time, a rarity at hotels today.  The phone was labeled as “anti-bacterial,” implying it was designed to protect guests and housekeeping staff from germs.

The hotel provides multiple meeting rooms although they were not available during the construction. Asia de Cuba is also available for private events.

WELLNESS

Gymbox, Europe’s largest gym, is located on the ground floor of the hotel and its vibe matches the hotel perfectly, with nightly DJ events and laser lighting. Don’t miss the hip-hop belly dancers, bitch boxers, and cage fighters too.
