The hotel was beautiful and with a very historic sense. It was old, which makes sense given it's a converted part of a castle wall, but very serviceable with a good feel to it. The only thing was some of the limitation from it being so old, such as no elevator, so lugging large suitcases up the stairs was a pain. Also very limited outlets in the room.
Still, a nice area, and only about a 15 minute walk to the Cathedral area.
