We booked for 2 days and ended up there for 3. Would have stayed even longer if we didn't have an itinery to follow. Place seems to run on coffee which means dazed looking staff at the crack of dawn blindly stumbling to the coffee percolator, 20 minutes later, expect great service for the rest of the day!!! If you are having the cheap breakfast, try and book the night before as on the day might be too late. Come 7.30 am expect to drift awake to the smell of fresh bread, hmmmm, better than any incense sticks. We want to clone this place and put them all over the world so we always have somewhere fantastic to stay.
