Fabulous location, great staff, pleasant room
Posted Sep 27, 2016
Very nice walk-in shower with individual controls for "rain" and separate head, but no bath. I had an attic room with a dormer window and a tiny almost-balcony, an air conditioning unit, two single beds and a wardrobe, table, desk. Like a lot of European hotels, there's no power outlet at the desk but I unplugged the (empty) fridge. Watch that the fridge, like the lights, loses power when you leave the room. You can use a different plastic card (not a credit card!) in the slot to keep the power on if you go to breakfast.
A really beautiful location, and everything from antiquarian books and art supplies to gucci handbags can be had easily or you can just watch people go by. It's a very pedestrian-friendly area. The staff were much more helpful than the people at the large conference hotel I was at earlier in the week and gave the sort of service you get from a 100-room hotel, smiling and nodding at me if I went in or out. The room was quiet even though it overlooked the busy street - busy mostly with pedestrians - and I slept well. There was more room than I'd expected, too. The breakfast buffet was OK (and in a fun room). Don't expect room service here, or an ironing board in your room, or a caviar dispenser, but do expect a little haven where you can relax in the middle of an historic city.
