Stayed here in May 2014 for 3 nights for a business trip. About a 20 minute cab ride from the airport, but right in the heart of old town. You'd never know this place was there if you walked down the street - it's well hidden behind an old iron gate and nondescript facade. The hotel is only a couple short blocks (2 min walk) from the main square, and the surrounding streets are lined with restaurants, shops, etc. Once inside, things "open up" to a traditional, spacious boutique hotel. The front desk staff was fluent in English, and very helpful, arranging several taxi rides during my stay. My room was very spacious, with high ceilings, floor to ceiling curtains, and nice marble floors and counters. The bathroom was also huge, with separate shower and soaking tub. My only complaint was that I was in an "interior" room, so my view was of the 1st floor roof, and not the surrounding city. I did not eat in the restaurant, so I can't comment on this part of the hotel.
