The hotel is dated. End of story. In a city of new and old..modern and historic..I could write a review about a historic hotel - but thats not really how it was marketed. We regretted our booking minutes after pushing the "non-refundable" purchase button - so I called booking.com and asked them to make an exception..."based on what" - was the question..based on un-favorable reviews..hold please.."Well ma'am - I called the Hotel and they don't agree with you - so the booking stays"..hmmph! The staff at the hotel was delightful - seriously genuine - no complaints. But that's where it ends. The rooms have seen better days is an understatement. Dark, cold, poor lighting. The beds..hard..but the bed linens smelled delightful! In the morning I tried to turn the shower water on - only to end up with the faucet in my hand..after successfully remounting it, I discovered that there was no hot water. The line at the front desk confirmed that it wasn't the first day - but the second without water. They graciously moved guests to their sister hotel - but we were leaving - so we were graciously compensated with free breakfasts.
The rooms are large yes, which makes it a good deal for travelers with kids - as the pullout couch was almost like having a second bedroom. And the location was quite okay as it was just off the beaten path which made it quiet. I wish that someone would come along and gift this hotel with a face lift as it desperately deserves one.
