Hotel Antique has apartments available, but I would not recommend them. The first one we stayed at was in an old and decrepit building. Most of the furniture was broken and there were no eatings spaces or sitting spaces. The beds were also very old and needed to be replaced. However, the neighborhood was very good, a few blocks away from the water front and very close to all the historical sites. Plus, there was very little traffic, which was perfect for my three year old son. The second apartment we stayed at on our return trip a few weeks later was in a beautiful building quite far from Hotel Antique, but close to all the sites. The apartment was wonderful, and well decorated, but no air conditioning (agg!). The apartment was located in a in a working neighborhood and so it was bustling and full of real people, not just tourists. There were many small markets around and a large children's park just a few blocks away. Unfortunately, shortly after we arrived, the water shut off and stayed off. We hailed a cab back to Hotel Antique and stayed there for the remainder of the visit. The hotel itself is a very nice budget hotel, and I would stay there again because the staff was so helpful. Enis even carted us around in his own car. I would definitely hold off on staying at the apartments until the hotel gets a bit more organized. It's definitely harder to stay at an apartment in a new city because the lack of support from a concierge. However, I would definitely recommend staying at the hotel.
