Yes, we'd expected 'faded grandeur', which is what we got, but it's not in any way a sad hotel! So, we didn't get a shower - who needs one, when you've got a gorgeous deep bath and 15 foot ceilings? It still has marble floors and big open spaces, and you must check out the traditional telephone in the booth opposite the lift! It's all beautiful. But that isn't what makes this hotel so special - it's all the unexpected personal touches that elevate it.... It's next to the river, so the plug-in mosquito killer was handy, the waiter service for the roof terrace, the extremely friendly, helpful staff, and the general overall charm. It's been in the family for generations, and it shows - wonderful, and we'd recommend it without hesitation!
