The first thing you notice upon entering is the grand stairwell. Of course you should be aware that you will be climbing those stairs with your suitcases so hopefully they put you on the first floor. The next thing you notice is the charming courtyard which is nice to sit in in the evening after a long day sightseeing the beautiful ornate city of Nancy. The room was well appointed though (considering the price- 90 euros per night- yikes!) there were a few things lacking. A full-length mirror would have been nice, I ended up standing on chair in the room to see my outfit. A shower nozzle that wasn`t hand held would also have been handy (no pun intended), really it makes for an awkward bathing experience. The floors were real wood and creaked loudly every time I moved, I felt sorry for the people below me! But the overall hotel experience was wonderful and left me feeling like I was living in a bygone era.
