It’s the best hotel in the old town which is not surprising as there are very few in the first place. And it could be an outstanding place. The spoiling draw backs? There is an overall lack of attention to detail. Hair that definitely doesn’t belong to the guest in the bed? Room not done by 5.30 pm? Wake up call not made as asked for? Staff at the restaurant lack any attention? Walking for about an hour past a cleaning rug on the chair at the next table? Empty bowls and plates at the breakfast buffet for an hour? Signs at food items totally wrong? (You’re better not allergic to some foods). Restaurant toilets disgusting with no toilet paper? The list goes on. If so many things in so many departments are below substandard it’s usually not the shortcoming of individual staff. It’s a management issue. If you can look beyond that it’s a good hotel in a great location. If such issues are bothersome: there are real 5 star hotels in town for a similar price. And an Uber from there to the old town is less than $5.

It’s location in the heart of the Historic district couldn’t be better. The staff was excellent, attentive, and very friendly. I would come back anytime and recommend it to everybody.

The hotel is modern and keeps the historical look. The room was comfortable and clean. Great location and view of the city from the rooftop.
