Very nice inn. I was in a regular room – lower floor – everything functional and nice, but not newly renovated (e.g. old style TV with TV5, CNN and many channels in Portuguese). Very good breakfast buffet. Cable and wifi in the room. Good tea/coffee with cookies and cakes in the late afternoon in a pleasant sitting area with several newspapers and magazines (all in Portuguese). The inn is located about a km outside of the center of town (the route is not real pleasant to walk), about 400 meters past the bus station. But they have a free shuttle service to the center of town and back, and the quiet when you sleep is real nice. Geraldo (from mid-afternoon to 11 PM) speaks excellent English and is especially helpful with advice; another guy in the morning also spoke English and seemed also real helpful. This is a good address if you don’t mind being out of the center of things and don’t mind waiting 10-15 minutes from time to time for the shuttle bus.
