Pros: location is on a quiet street close to the tourist area, but not in the midst of the crowds and noise. There is a great restaurant called La Collonia close by. The price was right. The evening worker was earnest in her attempt to provide good customer service, which we really appreciated. The bed was decently comfortable.
Cons: when we arrived after several flight delays, reception had no record of our reservation even though we had been communicating with the hotel as recently as a couple of hours ago. They had a room available, but it was an attic loft with very low ceilings, no shower, and an air-con that was no match for the August heat. We are both tall, and there was only once place in the room where we could stand up straight. The bathroom had a large tub, where we took cold baths to cool down, but no ventilation. The power went off for an hour to 10 minutes frequently, especially on our side of the hotel. We were the only room on that side, and the other side of the hotel kept its power more frequently. Breakfast was between 8-10 am, but the eggs and meat were not brought out until 8:30-8:45. We were down at 8 trying to beat the crowds and the heat. Cold cereal, yogurt, and cake were out by 8, and coffee was ready within 5 minutes of our asking for it. With the exception of the helpful woman who worked nights, the service policy was to say no first and clarify the request later.
This B&B would be fine for a childless couple who didn't mind sacrificing a little comfort for a good price, although I do not recommend the attic room. I would not recommend this hotel for families.
