This is an unforgettable gem of a boutique hotel. Not because the rooms and public spaces are in perfect condition, clean as a whistle, tastefully decorated and as comfortable as can be. They are all those things, but the clincher is the warm, friendly, hospitable staff, closely overseen and guided by the owner, Madame Mimi together with her daughter. We felt at home the minute we walked through the doors on a rainy day and were received with open arms by Mimi and other family members as well as staff members. They are not putting on an act of politeness when they treat you as a member of the family. It really was a pity that we were staying just for one night.
Mimi recommended the Doltso restaurant in the old city for dinner and, not surprisingly, it was great (reviewed separately). When we "dropped" her name upon entering we were treated as honored guests - but nobody suffers there.
Breakfast the next morning was a revelation with a great choice of mostly local and home made products. Mimi was again in charge in the morning and saw to it that everything was perfect.
The hotel is somewhat outside of the city center in a modern newer neighborhood. To get there comfortably you need a car or a taxi. There are signs leading to the hotel but the actual published street address is misleading. Our GPS could not find it. Thanks to directions from the kind people at the nearby Shell service station we regained our bearings and were at the hotel in a moment.
But getting there is trivial. You should definitely make the (small) effort when in the area. You will not be sorry, to say the least.
We will very definitely be coming back.
