One cannot help but admire the frozen-in-time look of this old hotel. Its location is great, if one wants to walk around downtown. It is great if one wants to imagine living in old-school aristocratic splendour.

Instead, tricky & slow elevators, small & tightly-packed rooms (two double-beds in ours) and hallways, ancient fixtures one's afraid to touch, tricky parking, and an expensive restaurant... authentic it may be, but one in search of spacious comfort might look elsewhere.
