Parlament is small but very pleasingly formed – indeed, it’s one of the best boutique hotels in the city, with good facilities and imaginative design. And, as the name suggests, it’s well located near the Parliament building. The décor is airy and colourful: the bar, for instance, has an eclectic collection of brightly upholstered armchairs and cow-hide stools, while the breakfast room has the feel of a rustic food market. Rooms are impressive, with a distinctly Art Deco feel. There’s also a lovely little wellness area, including a whirlpool tub set in a relaxing, green-tiled room, and a sauna.
