Idiosyncratic in the extreme, the New Majestic features rooms designed by the city's biggest creative names - no eccentricity has been spared in the bathrooms, either. In Aquarium, the bath takes pride of place, encased in a glass-walled cube directly behind the bed. Guests of a less exhibitionist nature can check into the more subtle, but still striking Attic Suites, which have freestanding twin tubs set in front of widescreen TVs and colourful hand-drawn murals.
