Beautifully decorated hotel tucked away in the Old Town with comfortable beds and chairs, but very little storage space. The single wardrobe was only about one foot wide and there were no drawers for clothes, but cupboard space had been made for a large mini-bar (although those who can afford mini-bar prices presumably stay in more expensive hotels). Unfortunately, our room faced the back (despite the position, I gather that no rooms have sea views) and was excessively dark and gloomy even on a sunny day.
The hotel was furnished throughout with fresh flowers and the whole place was filled with the fragrance of lilies – in October! Also worthy of mention is the excellent and extensive serve-yourself breakfast where you could easily over-indulge in breads, pastries, cold meats, cheeses, cereals, yoghourts and fresh fruit.
