We arrived via train - very nice way to come from Montreal and we got a great deal on tickets. Per our iPhone it said the train station was an 8 min walk but did not state it was up two very steep hills so more like 15 with some heaving breathing pulling luggage but doable.
Stayed 3 nights. I have never had a hotel go to the extremes they did, when they realized we were questioning the layout of our room - dark/cramped due to roofline. That is all we did was ask a question about the room and they jumped in acknowledging that our question might lead to displeasure and therefore wanted to ensure we were happy by showing us several other options and moving us. We didn't ask to be moved but the sandy haired woman was amazing. New room was much nicer although there is some street and garbage truck noise which they pointed out is just Wednesday...in addition one morning could hear our neighbor at 5am.
Older hotel but rooms are clean.
Great location in the heart up uptown which has a lot of restaurants, shops and cobblestone streets. Lower town is nice and also has a lot of quaint cobblestone streets, the museum civilization and is quieter but less sites to see in that area. Funicular costs $2.50 each way to go to lower town or you can walk up/down a whole lot of stairs.
They offer you three choices of pillows - soft, medium or hard
Bed was comfortable although not the best of our recent trip
Best towels - very thick.
Filtered water free and they will even loan you a sanitized stainless water bottle - their eco friendly way to save you from buying not earth friendly water bottles and it worked for us.
If staying more than one night, they let you choose from 3 options for breakfast - standard, healthy of design your own.
Negatives - worst WifI. Disconnected all the time and couldn't even get it to work on one iPhone even after getting 4 different codes.
Overall - great value for the location, service and amenities. We would definitely consider staying here again.
