    Great location on quiet street; friendly, professional staff (thanks, Angela!); clean and comfortable with nice decor; good wifi. Parents stayed in newly-renovated hotel and young adult children stayed in older (with a lot of great character/architecture) apartments: perfect for our family.More

    Our room did not have air con, and given the age of the place I doubt if any of the rooms had it. However, with the rooms being so large and the ceilings very high, I doubt it would be really needed.
