This hotel is fine - the staff also run a restaurant that caters to the hordes of tourists on the street level and a fancier dining option one level up with nice views of the bay. The restaurants occupy most of their time, so there's minimal interaction with staff (and when there is interaction it's rather frenzied).
The room was clean, albeit small, and the furnishings were pleasant. The wi-fi connection was terrible in the room. You have to pick it up in the lobby (downstairs) and walk your mobile device back up to the room and hope the link persists.
The reason you stay here is for 1) the experience of sleeping on the mount and wandering the quiet, enchanting alleyways in the evening (which is an excellent reason!), and 2) for the spectacular views of the sun rising over the bay in the morning (request a bay-side room).
I understand that the hotel is the last family-owned/operated on the island. I'd like to think that's a reason to give them your business, but if you're looking for more attentive staff you should probably go with another option.
