I stayed one night (3rd floor, street side). The room was spacious and very clean.
Nice bathroom and shower area. For me, the bed was a bit soft, but slept ok. There
was street noise until about 10pm when it appeared that shops were closing (it also
rained about the same time and things quieted down quickly then.
I really liked the historic aspects of the hotel, e.g. room decor and esp. the antique items
in the lobby area. Best of all was the very friendly and helpful staff, including Uma,
who cheerfully handled my check-in and offered advice on local vegetarian options
for me. The morning staff person also graciously arranged an Uber taxi in the morning.
I'd gladly stay again.
