We arrived at the hotel fairly late in the afternoon. The place was pretty difficult to find at first as there isn't much of a sign. The staff had already left by the time we got there so the doors were locked. We asked the shop owner next door and he told us the code to enter the building. Once we were in there was another locked door with a code which defeated our triumph of getting in the first door. We called the number on the door and the owner told us the code to get in and where our keys and room would be. This may sound like a pretty bad start but it wasn't too bad. It only took about 15 minutes to get in (which is faster than some hotels take to check you in!).
Once we got all of our things in and settled down it was quiet cozy. We had a room with a queen bed, a private bathroom and a balcony. Most of the time spent at the hotel was in the common areas. There are a couple areas with couches and a computer to use (also, the WiFi couldn't reach the room).
For a small fee, we got breakfast at the hotel. It was served in a nice side room. We got fruit, espresso, tea, cold cereals and toast and it was a really good breakfast!
There are quite a few good restaurants in the area but they were mostly packed. Luckily its in a good central walking area so we found a table.
The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Overall, really nice place.
