This is a Controversial one! May 31, 2011
This was a major disappointment considering my Dad highly recommended this one to me! He speaks French fluently, has a degree in art history, and has traveled Europe his whole life. To be fair, we did go in August, and it was HOT. But what this hotel calls Air Conditioning is NOT what I call air conditioning. Blowing air that is not cold,,, is not AC! We were sweating and miserable. We asked to change rooms. We did. Same air! The manager kept insisting the air was fine. Even though we showed him each room was warm, and we went through 3-4 of them. I felt like I had really toured this hotel by the time I had seen so many rooms. Actually that part was really neat. We got to see different layouts, different old furniture, and got a workout at the same time. My children thought it was a huge game, I was thankful for that part. They giggled as we ran room to room. The Manager kept saying NO hotel would be cooler. I disagreed and made immediate new reservations at the Laurus which I have reviewed already here. (their AC was wonderful) I will say this hotel has charm. It used to be some kind of palace or family home? Not sure, but it has special history... sorry I am not up on this. The furniture is old world charm? We began on the 2nd floor and it had loud street noise that would have gone well into the night. The only location I could tell this was close to was the train station. We did walk from the station. Everything else I would suggest a taxi, unless you want to walk 12 blocks+ BEFORE you get there. If you are used to 3 star or more... this is NOT for you. I will add other than the AC ducts looking like they could use a cleaning (i don't usually look at those this closely) the floors were clean, the bathrooms looked clean. And as you will be able to see from my photos, the room is unique. We loved the look! It is a quant little hotel that needs attention! *****I am attaching a few pics we took when we first got in the room. We were sooooo happy to be there, and the room was so charming. The little bed off to the side was so sweet, my girls would have loved it. BUT we needed air and a closer location.

exactly! it was just like a "fan" but not as good. Are you aware of this hotel?? When I told my Dad, he was shocked. He had stayed there many times.. which surprised me due to location alone.
