Expensive but Nice

My boyfriend and I were backpacking and this hotel was a very interesting place to stay in. The location is just great, we were very much close to everything and getting there was a bit of a breeze. Even though we showed up late it was very nice to have the receptionist greet us with a friendly smile. The price was a big much for what the room provided, but all in all if your not picky and like historical places, then this place is just for you :)
