The Baron hotel is clearly very old and has lots of stories to tell! It has a lot of charachter, and it's a lovely old building. The bedrooms are clean, a bit basic and uninspiring, but functional. Some of the shutters on our windows had clearly seen better days and so every time the windows were opened pigeons tried to get into our room! But it's a charming hotel.
The old man at reception is very friendly and can arrange reasonably priced tours and gives very good advice about where to visit in the old town. The location of the hotel is good, its about a five minute walk to the souks of the old town; about ten minutes to the 'christian' area, and is right in the heart of the modern town, although this is a bit charachterless.
The bar is fantastic... you can imagine all the history that has happened and the stories that have been told in years gone by!
It's a nice, quirky hotel. If bland, identical chain hotels are your thing then this is not the place for you.
