Absolut great location in the middle of the old town - pretty short disctance to the shopping streets as well as to the beaches or to the port!
The Hotel itself is built in a nice and warm colonial style - it used to be the HQ of a tabacco company making business with the philippines. Highlights are clearly besides the very nice lobby and hotel bar also the outstanding terrace including the lounge areas, the roof-top pool and so on - great place to relax! Also the service and the food are very good upstairs. Good Job!
The rooms are regular size and well equipped!
Room for improvement: the chambermaids are very friendly and helpful, but unfortunately a way to noisy - the implication was that they woke us up every morning when they made the rooms around us :-)). Although the receptionist was very helpful all the time, he couldn't really find us some nice places to eat with a local touch (catalan food, place locals go to etc.).
Don't get me wrong - it's a very nice place and i would recommend everybody to go as well, like i would go there again.
