Perfect location..glorious views.. our family apartment was unbelievable. It was spacious and well proportioned with casement windows opening out to the gorgeous cathedral and square.
If you are driving, it wont be easy to get close to.. (we drove through pedestrian areas illegally! Ignorance is bliss! Good old GPS!)..but Nora at reception was amazing, following me out to the car in the pouring rain (to my waiting clan) and organising for a local parking attendant to take the car. It was beyond what I'd describe as good service. Thanks again Nora.
Our 2 bedroom unit was private, beds firm but comfy, quality linen and the ceilings were gorgeous. The only complaints are that for the price we paid, the shower in the main ensuite should be fixed. It appears to be like that for some time. (There is a 'sorry" sign on the shower screen and I soon found out what the apology was for! I was trapped in the shower but my other half managed to get me out!) The fridge didn't seem to work either.. we didn't get around to saying anything because the people who work there are wonderful. Hey, there was also another nice shower to use anyway… I fondly think back to this hotel experience, remembering the gargoyles from the cathedral being almost within touching distance. Bliss.
