The location of the hotel is perfect for a walk on the mall road and still very quiet. The building is from 1898 but has gone through major refurbishments, so that all modern amenities are available. Unfortunately, to my taste, some of the character has been lost in the process. The dining room just looks to new... but still much remains, like the steep stairs and the old fashioned windows. The staff is as expected for the rating of the hotel : friendly and attentive.
