One would think that this is a charming bed and breakfast spot. It is not. It's up a staircase, over a storefront. It's impersonnal and, actually, quite odd. The innkeeper is just a voice on a phone. There is no one there at check in -- just an envelope atop a rickety staircase.
I found the whole experience quite scary. Then, after numerous email and telephone requests for a receipt -- I still haven't gotten one.
This is certainly not at all worth the money. There are lovely B&B's in this charming city. This one is a storefront, masquarading as an inn.
I talked to a local innkeeper who said many people have come trickling over, fooled by an inviting website that in no way reflects reality.
