There were hairs and dead insects in our bathtub. The windows were thin, so we could hear everything outside of our room (cars, breakfast set-up, people talking, etc.). There was...

Beautiful work of design, class, culture and comfort. Very comfortable, helpful staff with good knowledge of the area. Scrumptious breakfasts and little extras like hors d'oeuvres and Porto in the evenings.

“I rated the room as average only due to a poor wi-fi connection. The room was otherwise excellent! Wi-fi was important to us because we were so far from home and needed to be able to stay in touch. It may not be an issue for other travelers. ”
