If you want great location in the main square, good value, and character then you will love this place. If you are high maintenance, you might not be able to see beyond the old rooms. The hotel was created I 1943 from an old building. Service is variable, depending who is at front desk. They have parking available. They have... More

The location of the hotel is great! Close to the museums and all kinds of restaurants. The room was spacious and very clean with a balcony with a nice view. Breakfast was nice, the staff also, very polite and generous. We would stay here again.

The location of this small and traditional older hotel is it's trump card obviously - right on the beautiful colonial main square. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly - they even try to speak some English.
