The experience in the Mystic room of the Magic Hotel was quite unpleasant. The room was very dark due to the black walls and lack of lighting. In my opinion, the decor was distasteful. Bird feathers were also discovered on the floor, cobwebs on the walls, and stains on the couch.

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
It’s mislabeled as a hotel. The location itself is super central. But there are no services at all. You have to drag your bags 150 mts over to actual hotel to check-in, check-out. Super inconvenient. The room was clean, quirky, and fine. But it’s in what was the attic of a huge house or similar with an inconvenient layout. What you get is more of a rental experience for the price of a hotel room.
