The steep walk is worth the view, location and amenities! We booked in for two nights and enjoyed a well equipped kitchenette, clean room/bathroom & convenient laundry facilities. It was like having our own appartment! Extra charm: great common areas, friendly staff (gave me more change for my laundry after the office closed) and visits from Moss the backpacker cat (outside the rooms of course!) Would recommend and stay again in the future!
