Location and the old world charm
No tea & coffee making facilities in the room - I had to request for them. Insufficient lighting in room at night.
Cleanliness and stuff
Not enough plugs in the room.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Beautiful hotel with character.
WiFi was slow. Bathrooms are tiny.
Great location, great staff.
The room is a little bit small
The hotel itself was ok.
Didn't like the paint job on the ceiling? Also, the neighborhood it is located in is going downhill; a woman staying with our group did not feel safe being by herself outside of the hotel.
