Other things to note
There is a concierge during the day. Quiet building.
This is a Japanese style, shoes off flat. The furniture is vintage, so care is appreciated. Please use coasters on the original 60's G-plan end tables. I live there, so am grateful of discretion and respect of my belongings. :-)
