"The edgy, pared-back appeal of this former 1930s factory is exactly the draw for the modish, designer crowd that frequently books the 19-room boutique property."

Time Out
"The Waterhouse, a 1930s warehouse converted into a palace of industrial chic by local design superstars Neri & Hu, is possibly the coolest hotel in the city." Full review
