Good hotel with great service and friendly staff

Posted 16 Feb, 2015

It's a beautiful residence converted from a historic building. It has been converted into hotels, leaving the salt and the original structure with furniture, furnishings and paintings of the era. The effect was still enjoyable even if the atmosphere of a building as a whole was a little older and not renovated recently. There were no available rooms in the old house, they allocated a room in the Royal Cottage room, building in the garden and adjacent to a school was quite noisy in the morning. The room was very simple too, and furnished in an impersonal way. Surely there was only the name of Royal. The hotel staff was really friendly and willing to help in any way the guest. The service was great and attentive at the reception and in the dining room, very austere but beautiful. The first night there was virtually impossible to dine in the dining room, as it was almost entirely occupied by a group of tourists, noisy and boisterous. Fortunately, there was a restaurant in the garden, and as the temperature was very low, we preferred to dine spending a night under the stars, in the cold, but in an almost magical atmosphere. The second night, no groups fortunately, we had dinner in the dining room with excellent vegetarian dishes of the area.

Comfortable rooms and friendly staff

Posted 17 Feb, 2015

It is a beautiful hotel. Particularly I liked the architecture, interior photographs, furniture, etc. Small things like caskets, textiles, pottery, making it near a palace, as it was, being the residence of the Maharajah. Too bad that cannot offer the same luxuries and conveniences of a 5 star modern type service. I loved the atmosphere, the room is comfortable, well-ventilated by shovels and A / C, the bathroom has everything serving. The staff is friendly and helpful. Restaurant is open and serves good traditional food.
