Extremely helpful staff. The landlady provided all the information and help we asked for. Great location and a great view from the terrace! Beds comfortable and no noise. Very relaxed and welcoming place.

The best, simply the best. Don't hesitate! I learned the online booking system grabs rooms like these even while you're talking with the owners. No need to check further about this one. Use Uber to get up the hill and after dark. Room 4 is perfect for solos: delightfully appointed and with a grand view.

The sisters will go the 5 extra miles (no joke!!) to make you feel welcome, give you a lot of hints about the place, the surroundings and the city. The decoration style is classical, with a classy hint of a colonial / old school era look, the view from both terraces is fantastic. Avoid if physically disabled: the stairs are...
