The best thing about this place is the neighbourhood it's in. It's less than 5 min from the main sites but in a much quieter, more homely area of the city. Lots of small, left, LGBT friendly bars and cafes.
Like everyone else said, the house is beautiful. There is only one room to book in this six story, 100 year old house. For the mobility challenged, or anyone with large amounts of luggage, you might struggle up the four flights of narrow stairs. The room and bathroom are very spacious and it's great to have a bath.
Just a few distractions unfortunately. The bed is two singles pushed together which made for a bit of an uncomfortable night. Breakfast was bread and cheese, and (great) coffee. For a place of this standard I'd expect something a little grander and with a tad more variety, especially when you're staying several nights. Like many places it seemed, the smell of sewage in the bathroom was quite overpowering - leaving the door closed stopped it from spreading the smell into the bedroom.
The hosts are lovely and Pascal was great company. I would recommend this place to others.
