the green tortoise was big, clean, and friendly. located in a cool area, (though things get sketchy not far from there). they gave great tips on finding parking for my car for a few days. they hooked me up with a great wine tour. some of the staff went above and beyond, not charging me for my first night when i couldn't make it there on time, giving me a free lock just because, and writing me a list of all their favourite bars and restaurants. another staff person walked me to a nearby coffee shop rather than draw a map for me. the beds were comfortable and the private washrooms a treat.
