When one sees the charming façade of this 18th-century townhouse one might expect a similarly antique interior. That’s why the unique reception area is such a surprise. Expect colourful, modern furniture as well as an antique fireplace in a pleasant space where guests sip coffee on mauve or gold chairs and admire the purple walls. Each room is lightly different in style, but most include hardwood floors, flatscreen TVs, free wireless internet, phone, mini-bar and large bathrooms. Ask for one of the rooms with a balcony. Despite its age, the building has been equipped with a lift, not to mention a koi pond.
