Breakfast on terrace with incredible views. Very convenient to most tourist attractions but is on a quiet side street itself. Comfortable and clean accomodations. Friendly, helpful staff with good recommendations for restaurants. We would happily stay again.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The location is great. Walked everywhere from the hotel. There's plenty of restaurants. The staff and owner are very helpful. I foolishly ran into a tourist scam with a local business and the owner went and talked to the business and resolved. There is no sound from the street. The sound insulation could be a... More

Great position - easy walking distance to all the main tourist attractions and with plenty of restaurants close by. Room was tight but comfortable and spotless. Very good breakfast buffet. Bit of a schlep to take breakfast upstairs on a tray to the terrace but well worth the effort for the views. Due to a booking issue we were upgraded... More
