bad hotel
i was very disappointed with this hotel. i booked this accommodation well in advance - almost 9 months. when i arrived there was no where outside to park a vehicle to drop bags or check in. when we found a carpark up the street and on other side of road we had to walk 2 blocks with our cases. then we found that the reception was on the 1st floor and no lifts 2 flights of stairs and very heavy (not electric opening) doors with no door man for assistance. When i tried to check in, they did not have a reservation for me and said it was cancelled in June. i said i did not cancel it, why would i if i was still coming. i found out a tour company had sent an email to cancel my reservation, so the tour company or the hotel cancelled the wrong room. they found me a room after about a half hour wait. then when i went to go to the lift there was another small set of stairs just before the elevator. in consolation the room was great.

Could be better.
Great position in city, old historic building, but needs some work.Staff good, except for one at checkin, who had forgotten how to welcome and smile. Breakfast buffet fairly basic. Had one dinner, not so good. Definite 3 star hotel, in great location.
