Nice hotel but beware of basement rooms The hotel is great and truly beautiful! Although be aware of staying in the basement rooms, they are not a very good standard and extremely noisy. I wish I had been notified of this before booking as I would have upgraded to a better room and when we were there they were already fully booked.

great location--check about the liftsClean facilities, friendly staff, great location. The lift by the desk was out during both of my visits, and the 100-stair climb to the 5th floor (with luggage) is not fun.
