A cosy area with a quirky bookshelf-lamp and an oversized floor mirror sits near the entrance, making it the perfect backdrop for an #ootd shot.
Designed by the renowned Philippe Starck, it breaks (almost) all the rules of cookie-cutter hotels.

Rates start from $216++ per night for a Loft Premier room, which can accommodate two adults and a kid aged 12 and below; top up $20++ per person for its buffet breakfast.
