“Family run, family friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Still fairly new, this family-run business is charming and cheerful. You can feel it's genuine when Sofia tells you to "make yourself at home." The downstairs rooms can be a bit noisy, and the WiFi can be weak, except at reception, but the courtyard is a lovely place to chill out after a hard day's touring and there's plenty of wine on hand. They can arrange a driver and guide for you if want a day trip. It's not easy to find, but tell a taxi driver to go to Sameba, the cathedral up the road and you'll see the sign on one of the side streets (this is useful after a night out too!).

I don't want everyone to expect this kind of treatment, but I will say there was one extraordinary act of generosity from the owners that I think will stay with me for life. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are quieter.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Near new and very comfortable family run hotel. Good room with comfortable beds. New bathroom with nice albeit unscreened shower.

The owners go out of their way to provide a warm and friendly service. Free early check in and late check out is offered when rooms are available.

There is a beautiful courtyard to sit and enjoy wine and conversation. Tea and coffee is available for free at all times in the dining area.

Great value. We did loads of laundry for a very reasonable amount. Internet was patchy. There can be noise from other guests in the public areas.

The location is easy to find for taxis, on a quiet street.
