The main part of the hotel is neo-classical, dating from the 17th century (hence the name), and exudes a quiet class with oak staircase, marble floors, decorative plasterwork and a scattering of antiques. The newer wings blend effortlessly but have a lighter, more contemporary touch.
There's a choice of two lounges - an elegantly furnished room at the front or a quieter and more modern affair between the old and new sections. There's an inner courtyard garden for use on warmer days. There's also a small gym and sauna.
