Located in historical side of town, so good for sight seeing. This isn't a hotel with too many luxuries. It is just a cosy bed and breakfast. The rooms are spacious and very well maintained! They have around 2 laptops which you can use if you want to check email etc (free of cost). Loved the breakfast floor which had good views. They have about 4 - 5 fresh items for breakfast, not too lavish but fine by us. I met only two of the staff at front desk - a lady during the day shift and a gentleman in the evening shift. Both were very very friendly and helpful. Would have been nice if they atleast served dinner - because the area didn't seem very tourist friendly. We were a bit nervous to step out at night. I'm sure it is safe - the hotel staff convinced us that as long as we don't carry valuables (huge cameras etc.) we'll be fine. I guess if you want to stay in a touristy location you have to pick one of the beach side hotels, where you can go for walks by yourself without getting strange looks from people. To summarize - the hotel itself was good. The area was just ok.
