There's a couple that run this place, Xander and Diane. They greeted us at 1am when we arrived at the hotel after a long flight from Sao Paolo with a warm welcome but gave us our space as they could see we were very tired, helping us with the check-in, carrying our luggage etc. While this is not by any means a 5* hotel it certainly is a boutique hotel. There is eye catching art work every where you look, high ceilings with beams probably salvaged from a ship somewhere and a lovely breakfast area. The upstairs part of the hotel also has a breakout lounge where guests can chill out and watch the world go by.
The Hotel is extremely safe and in a safe area with locals going up and down the street regularly. It is a five minute walk from the Fort and ten minute walk from the town centre.
The hosts Diane and Xander are always willing to give their time to provide ideas as to what you could do around town and useful facts but of course this is no substitute for taking one's own initiative and exploring!
There ar eabout 15 different dishes to chose from for breakfast, three different types of breads, three different types of cakes, juices, cereals, jams, honey, milk,delicious brazilian coffee and a selection of meats and cheeses of course the poached eggs that Diane makes! :)
Good value for money, top notch location and if you're lucky they may even offer to take you to the airport on the day you leave!
