the staff were so welcoming and helpful; the hotel and our room were very clean; we had an issue with our door and Antonio was so dedicated in trying to fix it - he stayed way past his usual work hours to work on it. I would highly recommend this property.

Great location and breakfast. Staff was really nice. Property is pretty basic but totally sufficient as a home base for exploring. Room was pretty small and water pressure was weak. Also, something was up with AC. Eventhough it was cool outside, our room was always warm and muggy. Extra pillows would be nice. Also, instead of having umbrellas available to lend to guests, they wanted to charge me 15 francs to buy one from them - super tacky. Best feature that they have portable wifi devices available to use throughout the city during your stay - so helpful.
