This is a charming little hotel and I enjoyed the staff immensely. They made our party of three feel welcome and went out of their way to answer questions or provide help in the way of calling cabs or recommending local restaurants.
Unfortunately the actual rooms at this hotel were very disappointing and had two of my three "pet peeves" for a hotel room. First of all I stayed on the ground floor in room number 7. This is VERY noisy room! When I say noisy, I mean you can hear everything your neighbor is saying and doing whether they are above you or beside you. Seriously, who wants to hear your neighbors using the bathroom, taking a shower, talking on their cell, etc. I truly hate that about hotels...I believe it is the job of the owners to insulate rooms enough so I don't have to hear my neighbor take a pee. Thank goodness there were no honeymoon couples nearby!
Secondly, I hate it when you are in the shower and the water goes from hot to cold and back again. It is not enjoyable and you find yourself constantly fiddling with the water temp just to finish with your shower.
I'm sure these two things are typical of old hotels so I'm suggesting that if these things bother you please book elsewhere. The hotel is adorable but personally I'm there to get a good night sleep and I'm lucky I had earplugs, it certainly cut out some of the noise. Without them I probably wouldv'e considered changing locations.
