Cool, hip and very comfortable. Read other reviews, but found the hotel on my cellphone GPS quite easily. And yes, the street side parking was not really a problem, though it could be due to inclined streets for those who are not familiar with stick-shift cars.
Staff - Very helpful, professional and informed.
They do everything they can to make the stay comfortable, and will gladly mark out a great walking route of the town, which I would highly recommend. Their restaurant recommendations were excellent too, as were view point recommendations.
Accommodations - excellent and comfortable
Spacious, clean, and tasteful. This is not a plush hotel with marble and gilt all over, but the lines are clean, smart and functional. Stayed at the duplex unit (loft style), and really liked it for its layout. Everything was clean and lovely. The view from the room was great and looked over the city. The breakfast included fresh pressed juice, coffee, and bread and very aligned with the spirit of the place (not overly elaborate or ornate, but just great and right). Besides, there are a ton of really nice places 2-5 minutes walking from the hotel, in case you want something more elaborate.
Location - awesome. Walking to most everything.
Good restaurants, wall art, just loved walking around town. Its an oasis in comparison to the main town area, which was a little bummer for the number of cars/buses over there and hence loud and not much fun. The hotel and surroundings are residential, old town style, and just plain nice.
