The Victoria is a beautiful boutique hotel. While small, the room and bathroom are very comfortable and definitely deserve a 4 star rating. Excellent buffet breakfast includes everything. The staff is most helpful.

This is an elegant structure in Austro-Hungarian style - solid, sober, serious, austere, with an aura of nostalgia for good times past. The rather grand façade suggests ample spaces inside, but in truth the common areas are rather cramped and the well appointed rooms are just average in size. Sound-proofing is excellent, as it shuts out the hustle and bustle... More
