This place took us a little while to find being is as it is a small doorway on a street. Up a steep staircase is the reception and chalk board. This place definitely has more of a feel of a hostel than hotel but that's fine with us. The staff were generally really helpful and friendly despite the language barriers.
Our room was clean but basic and generally pretty dark. Noise woke us up on a few morning but that's more the fault of the locals than the hotel. The shower leaked all over the floor on the first day but after mentioning it too them the problem seemed to have been fixed.
Beds were actually pretty lumpy and uncomfortable and I got very cold the first night being next to the balcony door but they supplied an extra duvet whcih was great.
For us it was perfectly located because it was so close to everything, the Art quarter is about 5minutes away and the cable car station is about 7minutes away. All the decent food also seemed to be been in this area - definitely preferable to the huge hotel area in Sao Martinho.
