Looking at the pictures posted on the hotel web site, hotel/room looked very nice. However, pictures don't show how tired and shabby looking the hotel really is. Walls and trim stained and chipped. Very small & dark hallway and again walls, doors dirty looking and needs a good coat of paint. I think we had the room shown on the web site which overlooks the street across from St. Augustine church. Furniture very old and shabby and when we went look under the "desk" to find an outlet, found lots of dust.(Same behind the nightstands) During the day, having the large windows was great as they let in a lot of light. However at night they were a problem as the large grommets at the top let in all the light from the street. Also, the curtains were basically vinyl light-blockers and had several pinholes-they also did not completely cover the windows, The bathroom was also in need of complete rehab-tile and grout broken and stained. Corner by tub very dirty. Tub very deep but no hand rail to get out-could see the hand prints on the wall where others had used to get out. Not enough hooks to hang towels. We did not use the breakfast service as it was very pricy. Hotel is over priced given the condition-would be a one star hotel in the states.
So what was good: location - St. Augustine metro stop very close. If you like walking then can easily get to the Opera and Arc De Triomphe areas. Staff helpful but I was unable to talk to the manager. Daily New York Times newspaper. Mattress and linens fine-no bugs or mice seen anywhere. Room size adequate. TV did have an English speaking channel. Bells/noise from road not a problem. Could be a nice hotel if the management would spend the money on maintenance and a good steam machine!
