None of those American-type hotels for me. The hotel was small and charming and located in the centre of town allowing us to walk to fabulous restaurants and to enjoy the art walk on Thursday evenings.

This hotel offers 100 % free international calls. Very good business hotel; whole 3rd floor provides as conference bedrooms. However, did not offer fully free wireless in rooms, and only one computer in entrance hall for public use. Fast and 100 % free wireless service at the entrance hall.
