8/10 Very Good

A bit worn out, but beautiful historical building
It was close to what I expected, maybe the only two surprises were how huge the rooms were and how much history is there behind this hotel. With all that, with a little more effort in maintaining it, they could make it a dream place. But on the other hand it would probably be much more expensive then, so I kind of liked it as it is.
