Nice, but...

Generally, this was a very peasant hotel, and would most likely stay again, the lack of any temperature control made it uncomfortable for sleep as the days got warmer. Our window only opened an inch and a half, which allowed pretty much no air movement, especially after the housekeeping staff kept closing it! The small oscillating fan just didn't help much.
