A very old hotel extremely well located. Downtown - a few feet from the harbour, the market and the center of town. Nested in the middle of a quiet garden. The building dating from a long while back is sturdy, and offers a warm 19th century look rather than the modern cold building block aspect of new constructions. There ends the positive. No investment has been made since the building was built. No elevators and no one to help you take the bags up or down. The rooms of decent size are equipped with non functionning AC. The carpet is worn.
The very small bathroom has a small shower with a curtain which is of no real use to protect from projection of water. Fortunately for the owner there is very little water pressure and it takes for ever for warm water to reach. If you check in for several days save soap it will not be replenished. When I enquired about that I was told soap is a welcome amenity. We will only give you a new one if
The TV remote did not work and there was a hand written note on the set advising the customer to turn the TV on and off by pushing the button on the TV.
Breakfast is continental. It consists of excellent croissants, pain au chocolat and bread. Some days some fruit. No cheese, no ham , no egg.
It is like the world ended in the middle of the 20th century.
If the place was revived it could be a very nice hotel. It seems that it is not the present strategy.
