Our second time here, we absolutely love staying here. The rooms are small and quirky, but the amenities are sound. The rooms at the back are very quiet. Breakfast is included and ample. You are in a very historic street dating from early Middle Ages, and the hotel itself is

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It is a wonderful historic building in a great location near the busy st Micheal metro station. You can also easily walk to a great area of quality value restaurants and of course the stunning Notra Dame. This hotel is like staying in

It was an awesome room with a view of the neighborhood and a terrace with a bistro table outside to enjoy. Unfortunately there were tons of hairs in the shower and white hairs all over the carpet. It looked like animal hairs but it made me wonder when the place was last cleaned.

Hello,While I don't know I can say that there are rooms on the ground floor. The staff respond to email quite quickly.The lift was great - I have knee problems. While the lift is tiny (very narrow)i was able to use it and it was great. I am (very) large and I fitted ( not sideways though). The staff were helpful

Hi. Yes, there are tv sets in the rooms. I didn't use it while there since I was out and about most of the time. :)

Noisy works are finished. The lift will be finished around April 20th. We did what we did because we didn't have the choice. And we understand people complain. Terrorism is very hard for our economy. Despite of this we are very proud to do these works to give a lift to the hotel. To show that life continue.

I think the true test of the hotel staff is how they act when things are going wrong, not when things are going right. So this hotel fails the test. As I said, the person we dealt with was totally unhelpful with a problem that he himself caused. In addition, he lied in saying that he had not caused it. That aside, as I mentioned, the air conditioner had some kind of evil smell so we couldn't use it (I am pretty sure it would have made us sick). It's too bad, because this was a nice little hotel when I stayed there a few years ago, but everything in the area seems to have gone way downhill.

"Courtyard Rooms at the back are quietest"
"Do not take room# 2 and room# 4, they are closet-rooms under the steps."
"I would suggest asking for a room with no shared walls, although I am not sure that is possible."
"Ask for Room 13 or book the top-floor apartment if more space is desired."
"I believe that rooms that accommodate more than two people aren't as spacious; other rooms may have been much grander than ours."
$127 - $258 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
