I have stayed here in the past, 4 times, but not within the last year. When I booked I made an assumption that as I was requesting a room, and not an apartment, it would be in the same building as the previous times, the rooms with a bath. When I arrived I was shown into an adjacent building, and a room on the 2nd floor. The room was large & quite sparse, without the character of the main building, and without a bath. I asked if there was a room with a bath and was told they were all full.
When I arrived home at 10.30pm, very tired after a 6.30am start, and little sleep in the previous week, the room was so noisy it sounded like there was a party/concert/sports match next door. The noise comes from the bar 2 doors away where during summer everyone stands outside. I couldn't believe how much noise was being generated, and actually went back outside to listen. For some reason it was louder in the room, especially the lounge, than it was on the street. Fortunately I had earplugs!
The next night when I got in at around 1am the bar had already closed.
The TV is in the bedroom, rather than the lounge, does everyone watch TV in bed these days? The lounge is nice and bright in the morning, which is good, however there are no curtains which made it difficult to use my laptop & I had to go into the bedroom. I know, just little things.
On a positive note, the location is brilliant especially if you are visiting the Sablon, antique shops & the market. The breakfasts are wonderful and available until 11am, if you have had a late night.
