first, what we did not like was there is no elevator and we stayed on the 3rd floor. the second set of stairs curves and was narrow. it was had to drag our luggages to out room and they have no staff to help with the luggages. the location was good as it was at the old town and close to all sights to see.

I felt like I was living in another time. The hotel was absolutely beautiful! Old world charm with modern day conveniences. The staff were exceptional! So warm and inviting. Plus the hotel’s location could not be beat. I would definitely stay here again.

2/10 Poor

Our first and last stay
First of all, we would like to thank the owner for a complimentary ride to the hotel. This gave us a good impression of her and we were excited to meet her. However, she was rather unhelpful and hostile towards us. We asked if she could kindly arrange a taxi for us in advance on our departure day but she refused, replying with a straight “No”. Meanwhile, her staff eagerly told us that he would be happy to call a taxi for us. The room we were staying in was chilly, despite the 3 old and small heaters in the room. When we gave her our feedback via email, requesting for a change of room with preferably more heaters, she responded by saying that there we no available rooms, so she gave us blankets. Regardless, we appreciate having the extra blankets. The next day, we told her that the blankets were of no use and did little to help us stay warm. She told us that we weren’t able to withstand the cold because we were Asian, which leads me to believe that not only was she an unfriendly host, she was also racist. Unfortunately, we had 3 miserable chilly nights and wore 3 layers of merino wool to sleep. In the end, she told us she had an available room that we might be interested in but we declined as the room was equally as cold as ours. Without an upgrade to the old heaters or the inclusion of more heaters in their rooms, they would not be able to provide better service to guests. What a waste, don't let the reviews fool you.

This hotel is right in the centre of town. An easy walk to the train station. Located above a traditional restaurant, it feels like it probably was hundreds of years ago. There isn’t any elevator so this is not the place for you if you can’t do stairs. The staff were very accommodating. I wish I had stayed an additional night.

Location, location, location
You cannot beat the location of this hotel. Yes, the rooms are a bit dated, but the common areas are charming, and the hosts are very friendly. Walking out the door and being in the town square was wonderful. Bring your shampoo, but there was soap. We went in Dec., and there was no problem getting a hotel parking space, but getting through the crowds in the street can be a problem.

The staff are especially kind and helpful. The restaurant downstairs has delicious food. And perhaps the absolute best part... free parking on site! Highly recommed this property :)
