This hotel advertises itself in several ways as being 'handicapped accessible' yet is located on the second floor with no lift.

The hotel is about 5 minutes (walking) from the station. It is in an old palace which has seen better days but retains a certain charm. The reception and rooms are on the second floor but it’s a long way climbing up the stairs. You need to be fit and able bodied. The room we had was fairly large with... More

Beautiful and ornate lobby and rooms. My room's A/C #17 was unfortunately has smelly air blowing. Possibly due to room location of it from the outside. Also, there are no elevators. It's was challenge going up the stairs with luggages or backpacks. And, if you have knee problems, then it will be hard.
