Located two blocks from the castle in the downtown area, this hotel is within walking distance of many places (most of which were closed when we arrived after 6 p.m.). We were there during a heat wave with temps reaching 80 degrees F. The lack of air conditioning made our room a bit warm early on. The fire doors in... More
