After having booked this hotel through internet, we experienced an initial disappointment when we saw it because we expected to find much more modern rooms for the price we were paying. It’s certainly an old building (dating from 1913) but it doesn’t seem to have been either renovated in the last years. As an example, we didn’t see any elevator although the hotel has several floors (and steep stairs). Our room and the en-suite bathroom looked also tired, especially the windows which were really thin and easily allowed us to hear cars passing by or even people talking too loud in front of the hotel. In addition the curtains were not opaque like in many other places we had been. In a similar line, the air conditioning unit was old, also the heater, the TV was normal and there was neither refrigerator nor microwave (see pictures attached).
That said, we had fortunately a good stay because the hotel’s area is quiet. The beds were as well comfortable and both the room and the bathroom were clean.
Let us add also that the staff was friendly, that there were some iPads in the lounge downstairs (between reception and a Mexican (?) bar) and that the packed breakfast that we got in the morning at the reception was really filling.
It’s then clear that this place has a great potential to be a really good place if they undertake some renovations.
