Hotel with a view
This cute little hotel is exactly as advertised. Front desk service was excellent! Staff is friendly, professional, and very helpful. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Although close to the older town, it is uphill on the way home. Yet there are various taxis for a reasonable price. The walk into town is nice as all downhill. Views from front balconies are spectacular! Price is awesome.
