I'd echo the sentiment of some of the other reviews that this property is extremely old, which means it comes with pros and cons. I'd say if you're one of those people that likes staying in B&Bs because of the feel, and are willing to look over the inconveniences that come with that, this is a good place for you. If you prefer staying in hotels with modern amenities and are very focused on comfort, this hotel isn't a good fit.
Pros: lots of character - very cool decor and there was a sitar player each night in the lobby, helpful staff, free wifi (in lobby only though - no wifi in rooms), breakfast included (nothing special but passable)
Cons: not "luxurious" by any means - shower didn't ever really get warm, room was chilly (there during the winter), bed was pretty stiff, we were on ground floor which was tremendously noisy in the morning. One disclaimer - not every room is the same. I was there with a group of 15 people and some people found their showers were fine and their rooms were plenty warm (I was in room #5). Every room is very different.
It was cool to see/experience once but I wouldn't stay there again.
