This elegant two-story Venetian townhouse in the center of town has been used as a hotel since the 1800s and remains one of the nicest small hotels in town. The elegant lobby, with its marble floors, rich polished wood ceiling, and chandeliers, is furnished with sofas covered in metallic-hued brocades. The high-ceiling guest rooms are small but have been furnished with simple, contemporary furniture. A buffet breakfast is served in the lovely gardens at the side and back of the hotel. There are no views, but it's wonderfully quiet and just a short walk from the Esplanade.
