This hotel is stunning. Old school style. From it's ancient lift to staircase. It is very close to everything, restaurants, tram, funicular etc.
But - it's very location in an upcoming trendy area is the problem. The people drink & party all night and are rowdy in the streets in the early hours. There were 2 guys, 1 had a drum the other a violin, they would musically escort people up and down the street- ALL night (& early morning). They say it's only bad over weekends meaning- it's worse ( a lot worse) than the week (which is still noisy). The suits especially are subject to noise. At those prices I can't believe they don't try something anything! Extra thick curtains etc. So every morning we woke up exhausted. The staff were sweet but couldn't really do much. Oh yes- they are busy with construction across the road until 10pm at night. JOY
