Good location, just ok hotel. Some charm, like arched doorways and decorative details. Bathroom horrible--all aspects of it. Terrible mattress. No views, maybe a wall of a building, for many rooms. Pay much more for an ok view of the green space in front. Great location with much more expensive hotels nearby.

The food in the restaurant on the top competes with the view for attention, neither giving way. ...
