So, slightly away from the bright lights and bars is the St James - Perfectly situated for a stay at the RH Victoria or other big hotels on the Via Emilio Ortuno. It offered the personal and British friendly service that our 4* hotel lacked and it is ideally located for a visit on the way into or back from... More

Popped in for breakfast. The food was lovely, all fresh and good quality. The guy who owns it was very friendly and welcoming. More than happy to give you local information on places to go, as well as tips to help cure a hangover. We went back everyday for breakfast.
