Beautiful historic hotel
An amazing historic hotel, full of baroque paintings and chandeliers. I was fortunate to come in the off-season, I would happily come back. Thanks for making a great stay at the end of a long bike ride.

Stayed for 3 nights of which 2 days the hotel did not have WiFi service for some technical reasons. This caused multiple problems with some work I had to do. Air conditioner did not work well in our room. First 2 nights did not operate. Very sticky sleep. Last night, suddenly it began working. Considering we were in a suite and the historical prestige of the property, overall, this was a major disappointment. This was our second stay in this hotel and certainly the last!

More a 3 star than 4...
Very good location but old structure with poor maintenance. The room was old and smell old. Took 15 minute to get the hot water in the shower. Air condition without possibility to adjust. Personnel was kind and collaborative. More a 3 star than 4...
