Three night weekend, Room 115.
Good: breakfast (surpisingly good and generous), charming bar and terrace, quiet, air-con (it's just ok, not ice cold in Alex, but very welcome all the same), service (friendly obliging staff), shower pressure (really good)
Not so good: slightly whiffy (sewers) in room .. no it wasn't me...clears quickly if you open the window (!) , room a bit small, fridge didn't work (but very prompt room service ). 10+ minute walk to town, loses its charm somewhat after two or three trips...but the hotel is super quiet at night. so take a cab..8 euros.Bed v comfortable.
Overall I really liked the people who run this place, and I'd recommend it to those on a budget.
