In this day of cookie cutter hotel chains, it is indeed a treat to stay at this property. Yes there are some compromises mainly its more isolated location as it is not really near many restaurants or shops or public transportation. It is about a 10-15 minute walk instead to the underground and trams. However it is in a beautiful park location right on the waterway-enjoy the views. Patronize the Hotel's restaurant. It is a little expensive, but great. Soak in the ambiance of your uniquely decorated and historic room and appreciate that there are so few hotels in the world like this. All this and an outstanding, caring staff too.
