Overall rating
The hotel staff service, SPECIFICALLY guest services professional, Erukeden, were extremely amiable, knowledgeable, and helpful. I had two issues with the hotels cleanliness: the room shower had mildew on the shower walls' calking and on the shower wall tiles. I requested it be recleaned, however that did not rectify the issue. Secondly, as I went to get into bed on my last night, there was a rather large spider that crawled off my pillow! I called the front desk to report. They offered to move me however, I rejected the offer as it was very late. I suggested the room be treated for spiders once I checked out.

Superb hotel in the Gothic Quarter
This is one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in my life. The dtaff is incredibly friendly and courteous. We had a problem with our room and they went above and beyond to fix it. Even when we thought to let it go, they found us and made sure to do everything in their power to make it right. And they did. Special thanks to David, Ruth and Ruben.
