What’s invisible service all about? Think all the luxury of a hotel and none of the hassle. No lengthy check-in process, no front desk to deal with, no room keys that inevitably get lost. Instead, you arrive at Lokal armed with your key codes. The first one gets you in the front door, the second gets you in your room. And by room, we mean super hip studio apartment in the heart of the Old City neighborhood.
