I stayed here last week as part of a large group - we occupied the entire hotel - and though I realise I was fortunate to be allocated a room with air-con, I found the experience much better than some reviews had led me to expect. The beds (we had 2 doubles) were spotless and very comfortable, the bathroom (complete with shower and bath) well-equipped. Our room looked onto a small, enclosed inner court so there was no view at all, and there was an air-con unit just outside, but were didn't care as we were barely there other than to sleep, and it was blissfully quiet. The stone floor was cool underfoot - though the cement between the flags had a tendency to fragment and stick to the feet: slippers are a must. Sheets and towels were changed daily, although we didn't request this. There was a wardrobe with hangars, but no shelves other than the top one, full of extra bedding, so we lived partly out of our cases: I could have done with a drawer or two. We ate one dinner in Le Lutrin, the hotel restaurant: food and service were excellent. Emily, in charge of breakfasts, was wonderful - cheerful, obliging, able to find soya milk for cereal. The location of the hotel makes it ideal for wandering through the old town in the evenings. I realise that I might feel differently had I had a noisier/non-a/c/smaller room, but based on my experience of Room 24 I'd go back like a shot.
