When we entered this hotel, it reminded us a hotel for one hundred years ago. Like hotels I watched in the movies like Zoro when I was a Child. The building itself is looking very nice and historic and the decoration was matching the building. There is a problem that they did not bring enough comfort level to historical aspect of Hotel.First they offered us a room at the ground floor. It was dark and humid. Then we changed to a room in the first floor. There was no A/C in the hotel and just a portable Chauffage. The bathroom was big but the window of bathroom opened to corridor which brought down the level of privacy. The door, windows and walls were not sound proof and if you are sensitive, you would have got some problem. TV programs were ok and plenty. Breakfast was limited and breakfast hall was very cold on early morning. The staff do not speak English but not a big problem. Sometimes the restaurant waiters for attracting customers in, playing musical organs at the entrance hall in the evening which would increase noise level.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor are bigger and with sun light.

A lot to like about this hotel and, for me, a very welcome change from the identikit that too many Holiday Inns are with no individual character. This place has character in abundance and is in a great location of a lovely little town. However, the staff seemed not to speak sufficient English for an International hotel and seemed unable to fulfil simple requests. The rooms were also quite spartan and my room did not have wifi reception (as advertised). All in all, though, a lovely little hotel but don't go expecting a Holiday Inn experience.

I understand that there can be challenges of infrastructure, but after two nights of cold showers, staff was not at all helpful and refused to adjust my room rate at all. The experience left me with a bad taste. Carpet on the floors took away from the authenticity too. There are better choices in town.
