Fodor's Review

Ideally located on the main shopping street, this friendly hotel is owned and managed by one of the nicest families in town. Although it's near the funicular and a block from the waterfront, it manages to remain peaceful after sundown. The rooms are tiny, but clever carpentry makes the most out of small spaces, creating niches for a mirror, a television, or a hideaway bed. The dining room is also small, so breakfast in bed is encouraged.
