Great design and location but otherwise just OK

Cute hotel and design, central location and really easy to get to / around. Front desk person was really nice and tried to be really helpful to us. Decent price as well. However, the room we were in smelled really bad and even though they were nice enough to move us, it smelled bad in the second room too (like sewage?). Beds were comfortable enough and everything else was clean though. Also, it didn't smell bad in our friend's room. It seemed to be a problem with one specific area of the building. We also chose this hotel because it has a cafe/restaurant on the ground floor, which is nice when you're jetlagged and want an early coffee or beer before bed, but it never really seemed to be open and when my husband tried to get a coffee at 7am just ended up going to 7-11 instead. Overall, our experience was just OK and I don't think I'd stay here again.
