We stayed here for 7nights in room #201. The room was furnished with stylish and comfy antic pieces and despite its relatively small size (11,5 m2) we had everything we needed. Beside the double bed and a desk with a chair, the family - the owners - transformed the old fireplace into a small museum of antic lamps. The wash basin and sink was also in the room and the small attached bathroom had a very nice and big shower cabin along with a toilet. The room opened to the back, where the owner family lives, so there was no noise and traffic at night. We had long and satisfying sleep every night. From the window we got a splendid view to the magnificently beautiful cathedral day and night.
Wifi was free and available throughout the hotel and speed, reception were all excellent.
The best part is the owner family's almost unbelievable friendliness. They served good breakfast every morning included in the very reasonable room rate. Cakes, croissants, butter, jams, orange juice, fresh brown bread, cured meats were delivered to the table in the moment we sat down. They made great fried eggs, toast, tea and coffee at our convenience in a minute. One evening they even delivered champagne in ice bucket along with chocolate to our room. They went out of their way every time they saw us and were always ready to help in everything.
It was partly a business trip and my fianceé escorted me on that. We truly found a romantic place in the hotel and I could even prepare for my duties in the room as well.
The location is probably the best. Right at the corner of the historic downtown area, opposite the beautiful Alameda Park, 2 min. from the midieval streets and 5min. from the cathedral.
We highly recommend this place. It looks much pricier than it actually is. The friendly owners make this spotlessly clean and atmospheric hotel the best choice in town.
