Moved to this property from the Ambassador Hotel across the street. We had originally thought that this was just a restaurant, but observed the large doors around the interior courtyard. We were informed there were 11 rooms. Junior suites and suites. All were two story suites. Junior suites had the large bathroom upstairs. Suites had the bathroom downstairs and a queen size bed upstairs with a nice sitting area with furniture...king size canopy bed downstairs. All had a mini-fridge/pay mini bar. The property was built in the 17th century and the furniture in the suite was of the era, yet not original. Unique. Restaurant was fabulous. There is a movable roof. You can also dine in an air conditioned area....either smoking or non-smoking. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Beds were very comfortable and the bath was GIANT. Check out my photos (will have to post more...check out my "alienpilot" contributions for Aug 2007). Service was impeccable. Definitely a HUGE step up from the Ambassodor across the street. I would classify this as a four star property.
