The reviews are all true…this hotel is gorgeously decorated. It's like a modern cinderella castle, with really interesting decor and plus comfortable beds and surroundings. Our room had a little juliet terrace overlooking the gardens and the street, which was surprisingly quiet.
I pre-booked for my little poodle, and got a 5 euro "suite doggie" package which meant she had a little bed and bowls in the room. So cute, and nice to know she was welcome!
Dinner in the restaurant was good, but very expensive. The service was fine, but the room was dead silent! They really should turn the music up, because every guest in there felt like they needed to whisper. It was really awkward, like eating in a library.
here is where it gets weird…
We were about ten minutes walking from the Duomo [center city area], which was good…but it bears mentioning that though the location as a whole is convenient, this hotel is located right next door to a soup kitchen/homeless shelter. Every afternoon, there is a huge crowd of disenfranchised locals hanging around right in front of the hotel and surrounding park area, washing their feet AND bare bodies in the fountains [literally], peeing [and more!] in the bushes in plain view of pretty much everyone, and generally just hanging around for several hours waiting for their dinner or a room for the night or whatever the church is actually providing them. I understand that these people need this help, and I am truly glad that they are getting it…but as a young female who did a lot of sightseeing alone, I was not comfortable walking over to the monument right in front of the Chateau Monfort and being greeted by six homeless people bathing in the fountain that surrounded it.
I would probably not stay here again due to that…which is really sad, because it was a lovely hotel.
