Most important the breakfast time is free so you can sleep and it can also be taken in your room with... More

I loved this 1960 deco style hotel. The building from the outside is not outstanding but once inside you end up in a Mad Men style hotel with tasty deco and comfortable spaces to relax. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the extreme kindness of the hosts and staff (more like stepping in a private home than in a... More

Without the forced socializing. Right when you walk in you are welcomed warmly and shown around. They are full of helpful suggestions for things to do, will make all kinds of reservations for you, have a great breakfast if you want a break from the usual pastry and coffee. They have a solid wine selection as well. The poolside atmosphere... More

The hotel staff was incredibly accommodating, giving us a personal cell phone to reach their staff at any point during our stay and also booking dinner reservations near by. The hotel provide bikes you can use to ride around the area and has a nice... More

We stayed at the superior suite for 2 nights on a rainy weekend. We had to spend a lot of time indoors. The room was ok, but it had no closet space. It was full of little flies hiding in the curtains. The small refrigerator did not work, and water drained through the window when it rained. Not worth the... More
