8/10 Very Good

Charming—like staying with great-grandmother!
If you are a minimalist that wants a five star, luxury hotel, pass this one up. But if you like old world charm, with character and history, this is the place for you! With the tapestry chairs, the burgundy velvet, the Tiffany-style lampshades—this hotel has all of the comforts of your great-grandma’s home. It also has some of the ‘deficiencies’, such as the uneven floors, the lack of air conditioning, no screens on the windows, and no elevator, so know that going in and plan accordingly. But in terms of the things that matter to me—cleanliness, service, location, and the availability of places to eat (there was a pub and restaurant right on site!), this place was top-notch!
