No maid service if your stay is 3 days or less. The king bed has no night table area, there are no drawers or closets, just a rack with hangars. The staff struggled with English, the breakfast I paid for was not great. The design is lovely, and the location is great.

We loved it here! We moved out of a scary Airbnb and were so happy to find the Granbell. Very clean, friendly staff, close to everything. My daughter loved the bath house in the basement. Great stay.

The hotel was great and the location convenient. The room was cute and the public bath was superb. The place to put luggage was a bit of an issue due to the small size and the wifi was just slow, I stuck to my pocket wifi since the hotel wifi was miserably slow. Overall I enjoyed it and I’ll definitely plan to stay here again the next time.
