Normally Anne & I are not too bothered by views - we expect to not be in our room that much so as long as it is clean, comfortable with a big bed and good shower we are happy. However we partly chose this hotel as it overlooks the cathedral and we had heard it was worth considering the view. We had room 606 and it was superb - the room met all our prerequisites and the large terrace overlooking the square and cathedral made a significant difference to the experience. We could sip a drink in the late afternoon sun whilst watching life's pageantry play out below.
The hotel itself was very good with excellent reception staff & superb breakfast buffet in a lovely basement area. We will be back.
