We stayed here for 1 night in mid-July, and it was very disappointing. The hotel says that it has parking, but gives no directions to what turns out to be a very complicated (many one-way and pedestrian streets) public, and often full, small parking area. There was no one to help us with our luggage. We had an apartment, for our group of 5, and the 5th bed was not ready when we checked in (after the set check-in time). While the public areas are lovely (although tiny), the room looked like it was circa 1975, and not that clean. The kitchen had no amenities -- if we had intended to cook there, it would've been impossible. The rooms overlooked a (lovely) street, and conversations were audible from the 3rd floor through the night (no air conditioning meant the windows had to be open). Sunday morning the church bells chimed incessantly, starting at about 6 am -- obviously not the hotel's fault but again, with air conditioning, we could've closed the windows.
When we asked for a breakfast spot, we were directed to an area about 10 minutes' walk away where there are several restaurants, only 2 of which were open. This might've been fine with all adults, but with 2 young children, this was not ideal. Turns out that the hotel serves breakfast, but no one volunteered the information. In fact, the room had no information at all (including check-out time, and so we were locked out of our room when we returned 45 minutes past check-out -- a time we'd never been told) -- aside from a massage offer.
The suite was very disappointing, especially because it was not cheap -- 160 euros, with tax, and we did have other options.
