Even the owner is there talking with guests and making a very nice stay. He is an art lover, so the hotel has very beautiful pieces that make it an exquisite gem. The restaurant offers delicious meals, and...

A lovely old colonial (presumably) building that has been beautifully restored with great attention to detail it is a peaceful oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of this interesting old town. The rooms (ours was a garden room) are large, stylish and...
