“Ohhh Boy.”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Location is great in the middle of town.
The staff/owners are nice, from central casting.
The room had A/C... Those are all the good things.
I haven't stayed in a room like this since the 1970's when I was a student and my budget was $15 a night.

It is what it is and if all you need is a cheap place in town for a night...

Reviewed 4 October 2009

Stayed for 3 nights in September. The location on the main square of the old town along with the price are big advantages, along with this being an old historical building. First impression of the room was that it was *very* basic, a bed, and ugly white wardrobe, a chair, white walls, a cheap tiled floor. The bathroom was en-suite but rickety, aged and the fittings plastic.

However, for a reasons I still can't quite pinpoint, there was a certain charm to the room and I had no problem relaxing to unwind there. Hanging out of the window to watch the activity on the square was also good entertainment. Because of this, as well as the price and location, and as long as you're aware of how basic the facilities are, I would recommend it.
