Gem!

Beautiful property in a lovely little town. Rooms are old, quaint and gorgeous. Staff and service are top notch! The dining recommendations they gave were outstanding. Only quibble would be the quality of the pillows and the breakfast buffet could use a little work. Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

Great staff and beautiful old building

This hotel was great, the staff was always welcoming and very nice. I enjoyed speaking with Daniela, who was professional and very helpful with questions. The breakfast was good, room clean and bed very nice. Just behind the hotel is a small mall and I went to a movie. The main tourist street starts at the hotel, beautiful vibe with old building.

The place to stay

Gorgeously renovated centrally located ancient mansion, close to train and funicular and in historic district. The staff were incredibly helpful and always professional. Delicious breakfast and pretty little pool. This is a superb value!
