    Good stay

    Nice, clean, and comfortable, even though the room was quite small. Great central location, and decent breakfast with a fine rooftop view. Would stay here again!

    5/5 Excellent

    This is a very nice historic property. And it has been well maintained. Walls are thick so it is reasonably quiet. Great views from upper floor rooms and the restaurant on the tenth floor. Staff very nice. Location is excellent across from train station and much to do in surrounding area.
