Historical Charm, Great Location, but the terrace no longer had panoramic views because of a big tree

The hotel was built in the 16th century and had character. It felt historic and was located along old, narrow, cobbled streets. There was no street entrance we could drive to and no parking located on site (which was the reason we parked 7 minutes away). We dragged our stuff along the narrow pedestrian streets to our hotel. We selected the hotel because it was located in the heart of Montpellier and just a 3 minute walk from the Saint Pierre Cathedral. The location of the hotel was perfect for our purposes.
Another reason we selected the hotel was because the hotel boasted that it featured a spacious terrace with panoramic views that included views of the St. Peter's Cathedral. We were a little disappointed with the terrace. While the terrace area was lovely, it did not have panoramic views. A big tree blocked the view of the cathedral and most everything else. We could just barely see parts of the cathedral through the trees.
We enjoyed our mini stay at our historic hotel. It was an older hotel (that was built in the 16th century), which was part of what made it special. We were in room no. 11 on the first floor. While the room had been modernized, it still contained its historic charm. Everything felt old. The floors creaked. The doors and door knobs were old. The furniture looked like antiques. It felt historic, which was part of its charm. The room was clean. The bed and pillows were ok. The room was more spacious than I imagined. The bathroom was spacious. All in all, we enjoyed our stay. less
