Service is very good. Food was excellent and presented well. Even the chef and maitre ‘d was available during lunch service to assist and explain with the wonderful lunch that was prepared. Huge selection and everything was great. Hotel is nice, clean, and in very good condition. Even has an indoor pool! I’d definitely recommend this hotel. It’s in a perfect location and you can walk to many many places to eat and visit.

Very old and dirty hotel. The rooms are freezing max 19degrees. The bathroom is dirty and old, the bathtub curtain is yellowish and does not close fully as the rail is broken. The bath sink countertop is barely holding and you don’t know when it will fall. Definitely not a recommendation
