We stayed at the Alexander House Boutique hotel between the 22nd and the 27th of June 2012. It is a boutique hotel. We were granted a friendly and warm welcome. Every one speaks English. We had a large and quiet room at the second floor, with simple and confortable furniture. The bathroom (with a shower) was rather small. The breakfast buffet was great. There is a small garden in the middle of the hotel, were one can enjoy a cup of tea and/or a light snack at any time of the day The hotel is not located in the center of the old city, but next to Saint Nicholas of the Sailors, were we attended a beautifull mass at 6PM. In fact, we used the services of the "Dancing Bear", who picked us every day at the hotel with a chauffeur and a guide. So, visiting the various and numerous places was not at all tiresome. All in all a very pleasant experience.
