— What is the story behind Sago Hotel and what was the inspiration to open up a boutique hotel?
Due to its state, the original building eventually had to be torn down to make space for a newer and better structure. They dug down two stories and then rebuilt a brand new building on top. Eight years later, after the building was refurbished, Sago Hotel was ready for business.”

— Please tell us about the architecture of Sago Hotel.
Great attention was paid to the detailing in the building, from the bricks of the façade, which were imported from Norway, to the German side tables that have different shapes and textures and hide the wires for the phone and Internet.
Despite the industrial look, it offers a warm feel due to the refinement of the design and the high-end amenities and services.”
— Please tell us about the hotel rooms.
On the east side are the King Studio and King Studio Deluxe, which have additional day beds, kitchenettes, and stand-alone soaking tubs. The sixth, seventh and eighth floors have full-floor, one-bedroom suites with a kitchen, a dining room, a living room and bathroom. Those suites have terraces on the front and back of the building as well.
The Duplex Penthouse takes up the top two floors with private key card access and four terraces with outdoor seating. It’s a two bed, two-bath penthouse with a full kitchen and a living room. There are floor-to-ceiling windows on the top floor offering amazing views of downtown and the bridges.”
