Of course this is a great location in the middle of Excelsior but I noticed some very good and very bad points. What was good. Great reception and welcome by the inn keepers who make you feel welcome. The homemade breakfast on Sunday morning was delicious. And the free wine and champagne was appreciated. Just my room was not good. I stayed in the bird room, very small with no bathroom. You will have to walk to the floor. No shower possible only bath and no hair dryer. What bothered me most was the heating in the room. The radiator next to the bed was heating most of the day and night and could only be regulated centrally downstairs. You can imagine it got way too hot at night while it was freezing outside. You wake up in the morning still feeling tired. Also there is no easy way of opening windows. Obviously the building is very old but needs some significant improvements in terms of painting and modern windows or at least updated windows. I heard from other guest that the other rooms are but the Blue Bird room is definitely not recommended.
