We stayed at The Merchant House from Tue 28.05.15 for two nights and everything about the hotel was excellent. From meeting Jorge at check-in we knew the stay was going to be easy and hassle free as he was very accommodating with holding our luggage until we arranged a check-in time with him and he even had our room ready...

On arrival we were greeted by a nice gentleman He showed us to our room on the top floor and carried my not so light suitcase up 4 flights of stairs. We stayed in the Oscar Wilde Suite. It was gorgeous. After a quick review on where everything he located, I was presented with a little small journal. Very nice... More
