Other reviewers are correct in saying that if you are carrying large suitcases or have any issues with steep and narrow (spiral) stone steps, this boutique hotel is not for you. There are on average 3 rooms per floor and while the website states they are soundproof, they aren't. We could hear our neighbors above, in the hallways and to a lesser extent, next door. The rooms are small, about 120 square feet, to say there is a "sitting area" is stretching it a bit, there was a single chair in the room and a built in desk-table.
While this may sound negative, we did enjoy our stay in this newly remodeled (proprietor advised us they had only been open 3 months, used to be the Hotel Ariane) hotel, the windows were double glazed, so you heard nothing from the street, very quiet. The bed was relatively comfortable, the pillows were a bit too thick (had neck aches in the morning), the staff were excellent and accommodating.
Iterating 2 comments from other TA posters, it would be nice to have the shower holder placed higher on the wall, so you can shower hands free under the water instead of it hitting at chest level, and perhaps a soap/shampoo dish would be nice too?
