This lovely historic hotel is well worth staying in. It was built in 1822 (I think), is spotlessly clean and brimming with character. Emilio, one of the receptionists, is a really great person and can't do enough to help you. He is a credit to the establishment. The restaurant below the hotel (separate business) is also well worth a visit.
