The location is near the water but it's an uphill climb to the sights and shopping. Very confusing and you may come out a good mile or 2 from where you started. Taxis have a difficult time in this small road so walking is faster, easier and cheaper. The taxi drivers way overcharge so you need to bargain...hard. They'll take you a long way to get a short distance. The hotel is nice and the service is very good. Breakfast is good but it's the same everyday which can be tiresome after 4 or 5 days in a row. Nice rooftop dining at night.
