I chose this hotel for the authentic guesthouse-style accommodation and feel and wasn't disappointed. A colleague said he had stayed here 30 years ago and it probably hasn't changed, and he could be right.
The reception area, dining room and accommodation were sparkling clean and the staff were professional and prompt with managing requests and providing local advice. My suitcase lock had broken in transit and I was without a change of clothes, however, the receptionist had the problem fixed within 10 minutes on a Sunday. This level of service alone will bring me back, let alone the outstanding cake at the breakfast buffet on a couple of mornings.
I stayed in late autumn and have heeded other reviewers' feedback about the lack of air conditioning -- the hotel is on a busy intersection and it may be difficult to sleep with the window open.
