I enjoyed staying here with my wife. The welcome was warm, and our room, decorated in the period of the house, was roomy and had a balcony to relax on.
However, we had a small problem with the plumbing and we were immediately transferred to a room on the top floor, which had modern decor (and plumbing), and and even better view from its own balcony.
The views are superb, and you can watch the sun come up, and also enjoy a sundowner from the same spot high above the city.
Breakfast was a simple buffet, but fine for us. The staff also suggested several good restaurants nearby to have dinner. All those we tried were excellent, and only about a 5 minute stroll downhill.
Once you get your bearings you can easily get to the hotel using the nearby funiculars. It was delightful being in this historic house, overlooking the city surrounding the bay.
