Originally built for the de la Baume family in the 17th century, this central hotel happily mixes old and new. The old comes with the magnificent stone staircase with columns and greenery in the interior courtyard, stone-flagged floors, wooden beamed ceilings, and chandeliers. The new bedrooms are bang up-to-date with contemporary fittings, padded headboards above the large comfortable beds, and bold colored textiles. Tiled bathrooms are well designed with lighted mirrors, though some come with a bathtub only. A nice touch is the in-room Nespresso machine. Ask for a room at the back to avoid any noise from the street.
