Fodor's Review

Next to the Church of St. Mary of the Angels, this historic hotel sits across from the lake. The interiors of the 1908 building are exuberantly decorated, with gilded paintings; ornate antiques; and heavy, sumptuous furniture. Family-run for more than 100 years, it's the only hotel in the Old Town with a large garden and pool area. The in-town location is perfect for exploring but can get a bit noisy.Light sleepers should request a room away from the street.
