The staff were friendly and the courtyard was very pretty, with a view of the countryside. The hotel is well-located just down the street from the gate to the old city.
We made a last minute reservation through Expedia after reading all the many reviews about the fantastic view. Unfortunately, our room had no view, just opened onto the very busy street, and indeed it was pretty inferior. It was a triple, which meant there was a loft with the bed, and a downstairs area with the bathroom. The window was downstairs, but at least there was air conditioning so the sleeping area wasn't as stifling as it looked.
I think you can have either a great experience here with the right room, or a really disappointing one with the wrong one. If you are going to book here, be sure to call and reserve a room with a view.
