    The lady who greeted us, showed us to our room and was present at breakfast was delightful! Had it not been for the dreadful weather, I feel sure we would have felt even more positive. The restaurant recommended - just opposte the hotel ("Nobre")...

    Located centrally near everything to see. A very nicely preserved building and decorated well to the period of its time. The owner greeted us personally and explained all the details of the building. Parking is available.
