After reading all the good reviews on here I splashed out on a very expensive room here (baroness) for 185 euros per night.
Lets start with the positives:
Its location is great
Breakfast was really nice and lots to choose from
Lots of character/charm
Room was dusty
Bathroom window was cracked & a plug socket was coming away from the wall
Really small room - the bed was very big so we barely had enough room to walk around the bed
Mould in the corners of the bedroom ceiling
No hot water at peak times (had to wait until daytime)
I tired to phone reception to ask about the hot water and found that the phone was also not working
Busy road outside bedroom window which kept us awake (not much they can really do about this I admit)
1 person running reception and bar which means that you always have to wait for quite some time to get served
It was a real shame as like I say I had done my research and thought I had found the perfect hotel (albeit expensive).
If anyone from the hotel reads this, please note that the room number was 26. I tried to raise these complaints with you but gave up after waiting at reception for 20 mins.
