I stayed at the hotel with my girlfriend for a couple of days. The building in itself is quite a spectacle - the house is very well maintained, and deserves to be seen. Breakfast was not spectacular, but adequate.
Staff is really friendly and accomodating, though foreigners should keep in mind their English speaking skills are pretty basic. We extended our trip for one day, and they were very efficient on the task.
The blankets and towels were all clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and tidy, but neither spacious nor luxurious (bear in mind it was a standard bedroom). The only issue I'd mention is that, at least in the rooms of the ground floor, sometimes the toilets do not flush adequately.
On the other hand, it should be mentioned that our stay there was in most probably the three hottest days of the year (over 40 C - 104 F) and the air conditioner (thank god) worked wonderfully and was almost noiseless.
Although the hotel does not have Internet access or a pool in its building you can use the facilities of a hotel of the same owners that is within walking distance.
Finally, the location is awesome, within the historical part of the city, but a couple of blocks away from the most noisy streets, so it remains totally peaceful.
Definitely worth a try.
