This hotel is in a great location and the staff are amazing, especially if you have pets traveling with you. There's only one elevator for the entire property so you may have to wait at peak hours (or take the stairs if you're able).

The staff was very friendly. They let us check in early, leave our bags when we checked out, and were generally very helpful. They even lent us an umbrella when it was raining!

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The room is very tiny and cramped and the carpets are dirty and the bed was hard and uncomfortable. Also there is no ramp for getting the luggage up the stairs to enter the inn. The hallways are really narrow also which seems somewhat hazards. But having said all of this, the staff is super friendly and responsive.

The staff was terrific. This boutique-style hotel was charming with a European feel!and lots of history. In fact, many guests were European. Everything was extremely clean. Bed was comfortable. Furniture is dated. Carpet, etc somewhat worn. All in all, yes, we would stay here again.
