Imperator Hotel, Nimes, France

This is a very old Hotel but a classy one. This is where Hemingway stayed (a lot)plus a lot of other celebs, but you haven’t lived until you use either the elevator or the room key.  Both are from the late 1800’s I think.

The elevator has an open grate door (which must be closed tight or the elevator will stay stuck on that floor, then you push two heavy metal doors that look like shutters. Push the floor number and when it arrives at the designated floor, you have to wait until a voice tells you to leave. Now, get ready for the next step.

You get out the skeleton key (I told you it was old) and read the instructions on how this all works.

The rooms are air conditioned and quite nice. Our room has a king size bed, desk, dresser and small table to enjoy a coffee or read a book.

The bathroom is fairly modern: large tub glass section partition, sink and W.C.

This is our second time here. We were here about four -five years ago. I like the old charm.
