This heritage hotel was really a find...charming decor, a triple with plenty of room, and a fabulous location just off of Chulia street with all the wonderful street food vendors. The small bar/breakfast room is lovely as is the interior courtyard. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is the noise if you have a room on the street (which we did). However, the staff was very accomodating and shuffled some people around to give us a back room the second night...and we slept like babies!
