This is a wonderful hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. It has a lovely elegant and relaxed atmosphere.The single room was a little cramped, but comfortable. The bathroom was nice and clean and the shower was excellent. The breakfasts were fantastic and they even threw in some local food for variety.
It is located down some dishevelled looking streets, but the area is clearly on the up and is only a short walk from the main roads, bus routes and restaurants and I never felt unsafe. This also means it's in a quiet part of town away from all the traffic and bar noise.
The staff were so sweet and attentive they make you feel special, which made it a wonderful stay. I only wish it wasn't so far from home so I could visit more often. Highly recommend this hotel.
