If this hotel was a musical genre, it would be Gothic. But how should one picture such a hotel? The name already hints at it: a striking black-and-white design dominates not only the rooms, but also the rest of this exceptional house, where not only “Goths,” but most of all ordinary mortals will feel right at home. Whether you burn the candle at both ends or use the hours of sunlight for shopping and sightseeing, the location on Times Square is ideal for all kinds of activities. This is why even the relatively small rooms won’t bother you. Surreal, elegant, crazy—in any case, this hotel is one of a kind.
