We stayed here one night on our way into the country, then two nights on our way out of the country. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and spoke multiple languages. They gave us advice where to go, how to get there, and what places to visit. If you ask, they'll call an inexpensive taxi for you!
We had an inside room and although it had a window to the hall, there was no noise from the street. We were asked what type of room upon checkin, and opted for a quiet interior room. The room itself was comfortable and clean, although the hot water in the shower had a trick to getting the water hot (turning the handle/valve just so).
There are many shops and restaurants and historic sites within walking distance. There is even a small grocery store close by. Overall a great location, close to everything we wanted to see.
