We were lucky to get one of the old rooms with original ceiling which we loved One recommendation would be to add a wifi repeater as the signal inside the room is very poor Also if you leave your windows open at night you will hear the trash collection throughout the night which is next to the hotel

A great surprise
We had traveled to Italy and France but this was the nicest surprise. From the outside the hotel looks older but once inside the rooms, they are modern, spacious, and comfortable. The front desk was extremely helpful and spoke fluent English.
