We booked this place for 3 nights for the heritage feel and warmth that a normal hotel cannot give. Since we are recently married I had called up and specifically told them to provide their standard room with a double bed since I was aware of them joining single beds to create a double bed. The lady I spoke to... More

We stayed for several nights at the old courtyard and had a great stay. The rooms are ordained with dark beautiful wood and the Internet worked well. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful with arranging early morning taxis to the airport. I highly recommend this hotel.

Lovely atmospheric charm! Friendly staff but most importantly, so centrally located in the centre of everything . We got the suite which was great but suffered from inconsiderate heavy footed guests on the floor above us. Being a old building with lovely wooden floors, this was annoying. Breakfast was not included and not value for money, but because of all... More

This is one of those places that truly try to make sure that the decor is consistent with the building. This is an old colonial Spanish/Portuguese home probably built 200 years ago that is in good shape. Our room was on the third floor and there is no elevator, which was no problem for us. Our room had a canopy... More

This hotel is charming. The location is great close to everything . My room was large with a four poster bed. The staff were very helpful . The WiFi could have been better. The only thing I did not like was the iron spiral stair to my room. Not great for an older person.
