Rooms are large and decorated with wall and ceiling paintings. The hotel has a beautiful garden where you can sit and relax. The breakfast was the best we have experienced in ages. Staff couldn't do... More

The historic aspect to the hotel is played up, which I very much appreciate. It is very well-located--close to a car park and to all the main sights. My room was very nice, on the back and overlooking the garden. Staff were very nice. Breakfast in the dining room was nice also--good choices and helpful staff. All in all, a... More

Wonderful stay at Jan Brito. The hotel is very close to the main sights but far enough away to be nice and quiet. The staff are very polite and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean and the breakfast was comprehensive. We especially liked the view into the walled garden from the breakfast room.

Beautiful residence from the 16th century in the middle of the old centre. Very kind employees, excellent breakfast... Our room was on the second floor. It was small but cozy. Very nice bathroom with a bathtub.

The hotel employees were very friendly and helpful. The garden was very nice. The facilities and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The garage is near the hotel and it is cheap: for 24 hours it costs only 8.70 Euro. Recommendation: Book it earlier and get it cheap.
