    The aesthetics were great! We really liked the lobby and dining areas as they were quite visually appealing. The breakfast was very good too!! We really enjoyed the food. The location wasn't bad as it was in the heart of town, but not really...

    I liked that each floor was banned after a French artist and featured, works by them. The old-school elevator was also fun for my kids.

    I like the property decoration with many modern impressionist artists’ master pieces. The bed is comfortable and bather room are spacious. The location is very convenient to go anywhere.
