Prós: Staff was very nice and hotel is conveniently located in tourist district.
Contras: Room was extremely moist and without A/C there wasn't anything we could do about it. Pervasive smell of cleaning supplies was irritating and someone (staff? other guests? neighbors?) was extremely loud talking and banging away during the day. Blanket was little more than a lumpy bag of cotton.
I originally booked 2 nights in advance but after the first, I swallowed my losses and moved on to another place. Was offered a room at Tulip 2 for no extra charge, which I appreciate but it didn't seem an appreciable improvement.
Prós: Beautiful room in wonderful hotel. This was refurbished in the 90s, but still kept its charm - especially with the original 'cage' elevator! Staff was super friendly, accommodating and attentive. Breakfast was included at a nearby French cafe. Great food!
Contras: My room was close to the elevator and steps and I could hear people walking up and down the wooden steps frequently- it was rather loud. Also, was awakened by visitor above me walking across floor rather loudly - not much in the way of sound proofing.
