Lovely hotel and location
Amazing 3-night stay, true 5-star feel. Nearby construction was a little inconvenient but it is fairly easy getting around the city, esp with uber fares usu under 4 euros! Doorstaff were always on hand to welcome or wish you good bye and help with directions and advice. The room, staff, backyard (with live jazz), breakfast, service, overall hotel condition made us feel pampered and relaxed. We felt like we were coming home to an oasis after each day of sightseeing.

6/10 Good

Very noisy! Major construction right next to the hotel that starts early in the morning. Very thin windows so you hear everything going on on the streets including people screaming and singing late at night. We did not sleep well at all.. That is a shame because the rest is great: good service, excellent location!
