The location is perfect - very close to the main street, and still a bit hidden, so very quiet and cozy. The personnel are VERY friendly. Also, they gave us a parking place for 15 Euro per night - not cheap, but one min walk from the hotel, so very convenient if you rent a car. All very clean and looks recently renovated. Tasty coffee for breakfast. Nice view from the terrace at breakfast time. Very few rooms and guests - good for those who don't like crowded places and like “family” atmosphere.
The major problem here is the price - the overall level of the hotel is definitely not worth 260 Euros per night (that's considering LOW season - second half of September!) Breakfast is definitely NOT 4 stars level either - NO hot dishes at all (even 3-stars hotels provide trivial scrambled eggs & bacon - here they don't have even this!), no vegetables, NO fresh juice, very poor choice and low quality of everything + very greedy approach (even a simple hot chocolate & an omelet are only cooked for an extra price). Overall, I couldn’t get rid of an elusive, but still steady feeling that this «antique» décor & atmosphere are all fake, like the artificial flowers in the halls of the hotel – to my mind, either put the natural ones or don’t put them at all. My advice – don’t book it for longer than a few days not to feel sorry afterwards.
