spent 5 days, great accommodations , HOWEVER, no mention of 3 floor walk up and i have very bad knees. it was terrible. i would have definitely requested the 1st floor room. also, didn't know where to deposit trash and after 5 days, 3 people it would have been nice to empty and never saw a person to ask. the room and location are great and i would recommend .

We like this 2nd floor with art work and spacious and good location. But I wish at least sometime someone stay at the front desk to ask any question.

Stunning. View. Clean. Cozy. Easy. Location. VIEW!
This room was so absolutely beautiful and cozy. In many reviews, people say that no one is there but no one is necessary. Check-in is so easy. The place feels completely safe. And the shower room was wonderful. The location is right in the heart but a little away from the hoards. It is a little bit of a splurge but you definitely get what you pay for. We saved it for our last night and enjoyed every minute. It was perfect for a couple.
