At first, I was looking for the property because, reminiscent to my American lifestyle, I was expecting big flashy signs and and an obvious way in. It was, however, tucked into other similar looking houses. I was very confused, so I called and Colette explained, and after that it was smooth sailing. Colette was very friendly, knew everything one needs to be tuned into in order to make the most out of a trip to this historic city and was an amazing host to the both of us. Her picture was on the website and it was a surprise to see that she was actually the one that is here! We stayed in the first door that you see as soon as you come up the first set of stairs, and in this room it was small, quaint and the water out of the tap was crystal clear and completely potable. It tasted very good as well, as we were encouraged to try it. Room service was promptly at the time we agreed on, and we stayed for two nights as well, so when we left our room for the day, we were surprised to see that when we had come back during the night our room was clean. Overall, anyone coming to this place as a pair would be well taken care of, parking here is a breeze as it is semi-residential and less like finders keepers, the place is nice, and the atmosphere is so... Vacationy. Like going to visit your grandmother, it is a comfortable trip away from it all. :) Also, travel to and from downtown was a breeze, I am terrible with directions and with Colette's guidance I was able to navigate the streets no problem. I came with my personal vehicle so I had more options, but even without one, all you've got to do is remember timetables (or remember not to lose the paper the timetables are on) and you'll be just fine.
