At the quiet end of busy Petercelle Street, this simply furnished hotel inside a 1700s Dutch building has earned raves for its reasonable rates and good-looking rooms, furnished with two-poster beds, other characterful wood furniture, and interesting masks and art, with the attached bathrooms tiled in mustard. All rooms have balconies, and there's an open-air terrace on the roof with pleasant views of the surrounding townscape. Although the Raintree has little else in
the way of frills—you have to go down the road for a meal, for instance—the warmth of the owner (who also owns the more high-end Old Harbour Hotel and the Kashi Art Café) and his staff keeps travelers happy and ready to return. Be sure to book ahead in high season.
