We found this to be a charming and very comfortable hotel in a fantastic location right in the middle of the old town area. It is only a few minutes walk from the President's Palace and in the other direction, less than 10 minutes to the Basilico church. The staff were so helpful. We had to leave at 4 am on both occasions we stayed there and they were up checking our taxi was the right one etc. The hotel is a converted old house and has lovely wood work and still feels more like a home than a hotel. Very good WiFi. We would certainly stay there again and have no hesitation recommending it to others. We avoid the modern plastic hotels which are all the same and like ones that are more personal and have some history and are more representative of the local environment. Also important, there are a couple of ATM machines within two or three minutes walk.
