The location of this hotel could not be better. Right in the heart of the Old Town, within easy walking distance of the Palace, the Opera, the museum, etc.( Literally right around the corner.) The pedestrian walking area is also steps away.
The hotel was formerly a palace. It has been very nicely and simply redone and has all the modern amenities. The staff is knowledgeable and most helpful. The breakfast buffet is quite sufficent and tasty. Eating all together has pluses and minuses. It's great when people talk with one another but a turn-off when people bring (and use) their cellphones, laptops or ipads. Some people have the courtesy of putting them away, others are clueless. It just depends on who is there. Several restaurants nearby.
For those who have a problem with ambiant noise, they should request rooms on the inner courtyard. I noticed that traffic and noise on the street side seems to be much louder on the weekend and quieter during the week.
Rates vary over the year, but are on the whole very reasonable. I have no problem recommending this lovely hotel.
