Fodor's Review

This beautifully refurbished late-19th-century guesthouse is nestled in one of the most happening streets of the city. It was built atop the remains of a stone wall that encircled the city in the 12th century—revealed through glass floor panels at the hotel entrance and in the restaurant. Rooms have white tiled floors, headboards with historical prints of the city, and high ceilings with exposed wooden beams. In addition to the inexpensive restaurant, there is also a swanky tapas bar facing the street and serving more than 400 wines by the glass. A breakfast buffet is served in the breakfast room, or you can opt for a simpler, less expensive breakfast at the hotel bar–café.
