We, a group of five friends, stayed at this hotel on the night of Dec. 30, 2012. The first impression is great. Beautiful internal design, spacious homely sitting room and great location. However, we quickly realized that the hotel does not have an elevator and although the baggage was carried up and down by the staff, there were people who had difficulty climbing the stairs to the fourth floor, from which by the way, you had an awesome view. Moreover, the rooms were not heated. It turned out that the rooms have fireplaces but with the weather at the time of our visit, the fireplaces had to be 'on' for 24 hours in order for them to possibly make the rooms comfortable after a day out in a temp of 5- 10 C. But then, when we arrived, the fire places were not 'on' and it took the staff a good hour to bring the wood and get them started. Even then it was not such fun since the odor, or smoke, was felt in the room, not to mention the fact that we did not plan on feeding woods throughout our stay. Yes, there are electric heaters on the beds but you really do not want to spend the night with them 'on'. As other viewers wrote, this is a lovely place to stay but not in the winter and not on the top floors if you mind climbing up stairs. What a pity
