Amazing historical building and best location in town
I know know why the accounting department never answer the phone. I want to confirm the charges with them, The staff never solve it.
It was a great location with a great view. We could walk to everything within the walls and even outside the walls. The funicular was only a few steps away. We were able to get our two rooms next door to each other. We were also able to get early check-in. We could have just stayed here and never left the hotel - it had everything we needed. We took a French class - very fun instructor.
We waited in line along time to switch one room to a different credit card even though there seemed to be several people at the desk who didn't have customers.
The room was so clean and spectacular. I loved that it has their own Starbucks. Breakfast was delicious.
That building was under repairing and we had some issues with the view :(
