A number of others have mentioned the smallness of the rooms as being a disadvantage but what I find the biggest problem is the stairs to the front door and the door itself. While it is a magnificent timber door complete with bolted hinges etc, it is a sel- closer (very necessary in such a climate) which is a problem when one is struggling to get two trundle cases up six or so steps from the footpath (sidewalk if you prefer).
Reception is in a vaulted bar area which looks as though it has been carved from the catacombs of Turkey and then decorated. The rooms are spread over two separate buildings with a lane to the courtyard between. We were in one building and the dispensing machines in the other and a quick (chilly) dash across was necessary just to get a coffee - so I would prefer to have a dispensing machine in both buildings. Folk in the other building may well say the same of the bar, reception and restaurant.
The rooms ARE small and the en-suites only just big enough to allow all of the facilities to fit but ours was spotlessly cleaned each day and completely adequate.
Breakfast was not included in the deal I got but was available @ 18 Euros each.
