Stayed for 5 nights and this cozy hotel served as a wonderful base for exploring downtown -- within walking distance of the main shopping street to one side, the marina to the other, and the symphony hall straight ahead. The famous hotdog stand is a mere 2 short blocks away. The main BSI bus terminal is about a 15 minute walk away. The cathedral is about an 8 minute walk up the hill. There is a micro bar downstairs that is very popular at night & serves a good variety of beers.
Breakfast (extra charge) is available in the same space from 7-10am.
Fantastic location, close to the bus stop, tours will pick you up from the front door, LOTS of places to eat & shop nearby, convenience store pretty much across the street, good continental-type buffet breakfast (I really enjoyed the fresh baked bread from the local bakery), Free wifi, clean room decorated in a modern fashion, comfy bed, good value for what you get, friendly & helpful staff
Not much of a view outside the rooms, light sleepers might be bothered by the noise from weekend bar hoppers
All in all, I would recommend staying here. There are only 30 rooms, so book right away or you could miss out.
