This is a beautiful building in a perfect location. While it certainly deserves more than its three star status there were a couple glaring ommissions which stopped me rating it as excellent.
Pluses: couldn't be better placed for the old city but still quiet and peaceful
Stunningly beautiful to look at, both inside, outside and from the windows
Immaculately clean and comfortable rooms
Minuses: There was no information in the rooms about the hotel or its services
The bar is a corner of reception with no tables and just a few stools. Not a sociable space at all and only sporadically manned.
I had been really looking forward to relaxing on the beautiful terrace,but it's actually a restaurant and I felt quite uncomfortable using it without buying food and drink. It was also very heavily booked in the evening, so couldn't use it then.
There's no lounge area, so nowhere to even just sit and people watch.
Staff were helpful if approached, but not the most welcoming...
So would I go back? Probably yes, but it wasn't perhaps the best choice for a novice solo traveler! And a warning for couples. My room had a large glass panel between the bathroom and the bedroom, so every time the toilet is used at night, the whole room is flooded with light. Fine for me on my own, but I wouldn't want to be the one trying to sleep if I was sharing with someone who'd overdone the wine!
