Stayed May 2013 for three nights in a large room on the eighth floor overlooking the swimming pool. Breakfast was more than adequate but did not eat in the hotel with so many local "restaurants" to try. Music in the lobby each evening. Located only a short distance from the "old" quarter and across the road from several museums and the famous Ballet school from which we enjoyed music filtering through their windows. Loved the hotel, quirky in parts… we had two types of electricity sockets in our room. Faded elegance in general, so even if you do not stay here it is worth a visit to view the charming interior.
