A once-fine hotel still clinging to it's (self rated) 5 star status.
If you're looking for a piece of old world charm, this is the place, but if you are looking for a real 5 star experience, look elsewhere.
Bathrooms badly need updating.
Nice crisp tablecloths in a restaurant don't magically qualify a hotel for a 5 star rating. Particularly with the poor selection at breakfast, along with inattentive service.
