This hotel does deserve an above average rating despite one major caveat. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably quiet from the adjacent busy streets, and the service is friendly and efficient. The continental breakfast buffet is fine. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening, and the food was OK, but then discovered a great little place just 50 meters up the street, the St. Melaine restaurant, which is considerable more interesting.
The caveat about the hotel concerns the steep and narrow staircase connecting the sitting area (where the bathroom is also located) with the mezzanine sleeping area in many of the larger rooms, including the one we had booked, with a rickety handrail to help you negotiate the stairs. Many guests will undoubtedly find this kind of arrangement uncomfortable or even dangerous.
