Looked at earlier reviews before starting to write this one and was shocked by some of the damning reviews. We did not encounter the male owner who seems to be the main culprit in adverse comments, did not get charged the exorbitant prices quoted in some reviews, nor had any problems with the bill. We can only write as we found so here goes.
The hotel is in an ideal location in the middle of the old town. It is very close to the main street, Sokratus, and 2 minutes walk to Suleiman’s mosque so 5 – 10 minutes’ walk in any direction will get you to most sites in the old Town. The location, however, is surprisingly quiet and we did not experience any undue noise. The hotel itself is beautiful. It is a medieval building which has been tastefully renovated. We came in on spec yet were warmly greeted by Marie Anne despite not having made any advance booking etc. As we only needed a place to crash overnight, we took the small room which met our needs very well. The bed was soft and comfortable, antique furnishings, full sized fridge, air conditioning included in the price, flat screen TV. Yes, the bathroom was small but it was fully functional. We looked at one of the suites and it was fabulous. We would not have left the room if we had booked one of those, very sumptuous bedroom, separate shower and bathroom, lovely balcony overlooking delightful courtyard. Did not get up in time for breakfast and, having seen the pictures, regret this. The small room is obviously small but we have stayed in similar sized rooms in places like New York or London. Would recommend the small room only for an overnight stay but, from what we saw of the suite, would recommend these for a romantic break, honeymoon or if you need lots of brownie points.
