This was a gorgeous hotel. The location is ideal-- you can walk to so many places. The place itself is historic, and beautifully maintained and promoted. Every room is different. Our room was capable of comfortably sleeping three people. The original murals on the wall added romance, and the practicality of the wooden shutters to the windows maintained the romance while also blotting out the noise of the street. The breakfast was wonderful and the central courtyard was the perfect place to sit and dream while listening to the fountain, and the live music of guitar. I cannot recommend the place too highly. If you are up at 7 am, you'll hear Gregorian chants while you head for breakfast. If you come in as a group for check-in, you'll get to be greeted by staff in the Chapel where you will literally gasp at the gold, glittery setting. Stay here. You will not regret it.
