As others have said, the location of this hotel is very good. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was plentiful. Some of the floors slope in this old building, which can make for a strange feeling when you walk across them, especially with jetlag! A few quibbles: The rooms have been updated but the carpets are very dirty and that dampens the modernization effect immediately. The bathrooms are also updated, and have good water pressure in the shower. But the designer was no bright spark...why put in a teak bath panel without full protection from shower spray and overflow, or unless it will be oiled or refinished regularly? Predictably, the teak veneer is now warped and black, which is unappealing and looks dirty even if the bathroom is clean. A second design fault is that the mirror is so far away when you stand at the sink that it is impossible to shave or apply makeup. Perhaps management could consider adding a lighted extendable vanity mirror. However, overall, we enjoyed our stay and would consider a return visit as the location cannot be beaten for walking to the major sites and sights.
