I loved staying at XVA Art Hotel, it is set amongst the alleys within the Bastakia Quarter which has loads of character (it can be a bit difficult to find) The rooms have nice decor as well as character, and they open out onto a great courtyard. Really quiet too and great to be able to walk out of the Quarter and be near the river, souks & abras. No TVs in the rooms - which I didn't mind but you could access wireless Internet (free of charge) in the rooms and courtyards. The little cafe on site sells lovely mint lemonade which is totally addictive! would definitely stay again.
