This is my first review so I am trying to remain objective. Our experience here was not overly good or bad but about right for the price of the room. I will say that it is a shame that a hotel with such excellent character is not living up to its potential. With a few simple and cheap tweaks this hotel would not only satisfy a lot more guests, the owners could charge a little extra for what could be a great experience in a time where chain hotels blanket the industry. We stayed in room #2 on the street side.
A few items I noticed which were detrimental to our experience included hair in the bath tub, flies buzzing around reception foyer for hotel/restaurant, no microwave or fridge (no TV either which I think is a positive) and thin windows allowed a bit of the street noise in as well as the blinds which did not cover the top windows.
Unique rooms with charm
Fast and reliable wi-fi
Several maintenance issues which could be easily resolved
Old blinds were not really effective and top windows allow light to stream in
No microwave or refrigerator
General cleanliness could be improved
It seems as though the owners have lost pride in this hotel. With a little capital, attention to detail and minor maintenance this place could be transformed into a real gem. I probably would not stay here again until the owners realised that age is only charming when everything is still functional.
