“The Smoke Detectors Definitely Work”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2004

We stayed for several days and had the pleasure of hearing the smoke detectors wail each time we used the whirlpool bath or shower. Quite ironic considering the hotel promotes itself as offering a tranquil ambiance. My tranquility was interrupted by an ear-splitting smoke detector five minutes into my first whirlpool bath. I called the manager to see what could be done and was told to leave the door to our room open for a while. Think about that security risk for a minute!

The rooms look fine at first glance but can really use some touch-ups. The towels are really thin, small and scarce. The shower hardware fell off several times. The floor in our room was very uneven. The room was extremely small but at least it was clean. Overall, a huge disappointment. The neighborhood is also sketchy. We will not be back.

Overall, it was a disappointment: the room and lobby were A LOT smaller than the way the internet pics made them look (the bathroom was closet size). The fire alarm went on every time we took a shower (probably because the room was so small), and it took several calls to locate the internet connection in the room, and it turned out to be behind the dresser and not the desk (which made no sense, so we actually had to rearrange the furniture to be able to get some work done while we were there). The parking attendant was sullen and slow, and there was no laundry or dry cleaning service or any form of it. Finally my traveler's checks were turned down because there were in US dollars, and I had to go to a bank and pay the commission to come back with cash to pay the hotel bill. On the plus side, it was nice to have free internet in the room, and local calls were free. It was also very nice to have a constant supply of breakfast-type foods and beverages downstairs. The restaurant attenant to the hotel was good and reasonable, and had very good service. The furniture in the rooms was nicer and showed attention to details. I think the main problem is that the hotel misrepresents itself in the web site, which makes it look a lot more geared toward business travelers and spacier, with a lot more staff and services than it actually is.

My Husband, Son and I stayed at the B&B this past June. We have been to various hotels in BC, and ON, California and NY and Greece. This was one of the best accommodations we've experienced. Stylish rooms, friendly service at breakfast time, reasonably priced and the restaurant was excellent! Convenient location, though neighborhood is transitioning. They made a mistake by not mentioning that only children older than 10 yrs. old are allowed, but made an exception with our young Son (they already took our reservation).

I stayed at this B&B last August and loved it. The ambience is great, the price was reasonable and the location is perfect.

We stayed in one of the regular rooms - it was average size, but very nicely furnished. Across the street was a metro station, which made getting around very easy. Breakfast was nice, and there was an internet connection available (free) if you needed to check email, or check out restaurants to eat at.

The location is very close to the old part of the city, but it is also right on the edge of the "Village", which is a little funky. It's not threatening, or unsightly, but some people don't care for that kind of thing, so I thought I would point it out.

Would I go to this B&B again? Absolutely, I intend to.
