You know those completely over the top places they have in period movies depicting the end of the 19th century? I'm convinced this was one in a former life. Marble, marble everywhere, and Romantic period architecture and furniture to match. Great art and a cute little fish tank. Our room had a beautiful little anteroom with extra twin beds in it, and brocade wallpaper, and the kind of chandelier you'd expect from a ballroom literally ten times the size. Small but - importantly - comfortable in spite of all the over the top decor.
The bed was good but not great, though the pillows were a little sad. The bathroom has all the comforts of an efficiency, but the water pressure is good even if the hot water does take a minute to warm up.
The hotel is in a great location, easy to find and with easy access to much of the old city. I don't understand why another guest reported poor service; the staff was very nice and very helpful with us, even at two in the morning.
The continental breakfast was average at best - the coffee machine was terrible and the rolls were stale, and the selection was rather limited - but since we were there to get out and see the city I didn't mind in the least.
