So, let me start off by saying I loved the staff, and the old renovated building was awesome.We were booked to stay in a partial sea-view that was not ready, which was fine(no big deal), so our first night was in the basement, and we were then moved upstairs to the attic. The basement room was very nice, and the only thing it was lacking was the view. The attic, on the other hand, had no A/C, so we had to keep the windows open for ventilation. This would not have been a problem, save for the excessively noisy street down below, as we were right next to the trolley stop, and the polis and fire stations. It was only one room, and had a slanted ceiling. The bathroom smelled horrible, and also had a slanted ceiling, which made it impossible to stand up straight while showering, My husband's parents stayed in a third-floor room, though, and it was very nice, with very high ceilings, A/C, and separate rooms. Also, be aware while picking your room, there is no elevator, and you must get your luggage up and down the stairs.
