  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel was charming and not a regular chain appearance.The rooms were and new very clean, however extremely tiny.The staff was very helpful and polite. The breakfast was excellent. The location is very very convenient. Beside the size of rooms, I really did not enjoy the narrow staircases climbing up to the room on the top floor ( 4th by European standard, 5th by american). No elevators.
