Overall I liked this hotel and would stay here again at the right price.
Gorgeous building, tasteful renovation
great water pressure
Bare bones in terms of amenities - only a front desk attendant. No bellhop, no concierge, etc.
No lobby bar - not a big deal since there are bars right outside
Room doors are rather thin - can hear noise in the hall. Luckily we didn't have loud neighbors but this could have been a problem
No temp controls - we just opened our window which was fine, but it was warm in our room and when we tried to turn on the air it blew heat
shower partition is a little short so water does leak into the bathroom floor
The service was bad - I had noted on my reservation that we were a married couple so to please set up for a king bed (as with most Euro hotels, there are two twins that they either set up as one or separately). They were set up as twins upon arrival. I asked the desk attendant who said the housekeeping staff had left for the day. It was around 5 in the afternoon. He didn't apologize at all or offer anything like a breakfast voucher for the trouble (or another room, since it was midweek in February and seemingly empty). Thankfully the next day they set the beds up properly, but that is just not acceptable if you want to attract 4-star clientele
