As other reviewers state, this hotel is high up the hill above the old town and walking down is not an option (you would need a taxi). Not interested in shopping, we spent two restful nights up there and a full lazy day by the pool before boarding a charter boat, which was the purpose of our trip.
This delightful place is built on several levels on a very steep lot and you must expect climbing up and down outdoor stone stairs (not a problem for us, but surely a big challenge to handicapped people). The view from is yes, day and night spectacular. The building itself shows its age, but is well maintained and has lots of charm. The pool is just big enough to really swim. For a great price our room (#17) was comfortable, quiet and extremely roomy, and even had a little private terrace. We took our breakfasts and dinners at the restaurant (you won't find restaurants nor shops of any kind in the neighborhood) and had simple lunches at the pool. The food, the service, the atmosphere and, again, the stunning view made us very happy.
Everyone working there is very nice with a friendly, informal demeanor, and eager to help efficiently. I strongly recommend Mafolie if you want to stay away in style from the madding/shopping crowds coming ashore from one huge cruise ship after the other. You can still take a cab and go to town after they are gone!
