One thing that is impossible to miss is that the hotel is gorgeous. The architecture, the patterns, the attention to detail, fountains, etc. are very beautiful and historic.
Having said that, being an older hotel it is a little more relaxed on tidiness than it could be. The rooms could have looked more polished, the beds cleaner (I'm sure they were fine, but the linen was old, faded and, well unhappy). I didn't mind because it was all part of the experience, but do not expect crisp pillows and polished cabinets.
The location of the hotel is ideal, within easy walking distance to many of the attractions.
I only had two bones to pick. One was that the staff at breakfast seemed completely indifferent when there were no tables available, except in the sun, where it was obviously too hot. Just could not care less in general. The other was that it was difficult for us to find the rooms, since they are split into sections with different numbers and not well sign-posted, so I spent 10 minutes going up and down stairs with a heavy suitcase in the wrong part of the hotel.
I would stay here again, but it's good to come prepared with the knowledge that not everything will be perfect. But maybe that's part of the charm?More
