Great location for exploring the town. Just 10 minutes walk from the main street. Big, chic rooms with high ceilings - although being a converted prison, the rooms don't have a lot of natural light. Good, fast and free WiFi.
Breakfast was reasonable enough. Friendly and generally helpful service from the front office.
The only real let down was the quality of the tour that we selected, based on the hotels recommendation, and organised by the hotels supplier, Exotissimo (all day trip by boat to the caves and waterfall). The guide lacked any real depth of knowledge. If you do book a tour take your own bottles of water, snacks etc - as they did not offer us even this most basic level of refreshment during the day. We saw other private boats passing us with customers enjoying a full refreshment service - so there is obviously better choices to be had by booking a trip in town.
