Perfect location and great breakfast.

Nice but not for us
The location is excellent coming from a cruise, it's walkable with minimal luggage although uphill. Great neighborhood to explore from. Overpriced snacks in the room and wifi starts at $9.95 per hour while most hotels and even McDonald's have it for free.
