I don't really know what to think of this hotel, it's so very special, like walking into some kind of museum or time warp. I'm very interested in history and do appreciate old thing very much and therefore very happy that places like this are spared and not destroyed by unsensitive renovators. On the other hand I do long for a bit of luxury when I go on holiday and something was missing here. Unfortunately we didn't get one ot the historic rooms properbly due to the fact that we traveled as a family of four. Our room had been decorated in the 80s or early 90s and, at least the bathroom needed to be freschened up a bit to keep up to the 4-star standard. The corridors also seem a little shabby even though the lobby was charming with it old elevator, wall boards etc. And one strange ting: They seem to only use 25W bulbs for the lightning! I know I'm getting old and my night vision isn't that good anymore but I found it hard to find things in my suitcase even during the day, especially in the hall way.
The beds were good and we slept well (the room was against the back yard) and the breakfast was sufficient but not very interesting. Again I felt that something was missing - and it wasn't food! Do the staff really like the old feeling and appreciate this old hotel ...? Someone doesn't care enough I felt! Just as an exampel: in the breakfast room an amazing and very large bouquet of flowers were tucked into a corner instead of displayed as the beautiful piece of art it was. Nobody cared! This hotel needs a loving hand, and it needs it now if not to be destroyd by beeing included in a chain of some kind and diverted into mainstream. This hotel deserves something more, as it is now I think the room was a bit overpriced.
