"Rooms on the first floor are best as ground floor is noisy & second floor is a climb of an extra floor."
"if stairs are a problem, ask for a ground floor room. No elevator."
"We did not live there"
"1st floor is better as otherwise you walk straight out into the courtyard restaurant"
"Visit if you like French food or want to try it out"
US$116 - US$169 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
