We had intended to stay elsewhere, but when that hotel was inexplicably under construction, we found this one. The desk staff was kind, helpful, and very accommodating. The rooms were just concrete cells with two beds and a ceiling fan, and the bathrooms in our two rooms were quite different...the one on the second floor was very tiny, but the one on the first floor was much nicer. The breakfast was decent (eggs and fruit), but it is really the location that sets this apart. It is close to great shops, restaurants, the main features of the old town, taxis, the waterfront, an internet site, etc.
