4/10 Fair

Seventy two steps up.
The location is great! There are SEVENTY TWO stairs to haul luggage up and go up and down. This type of information should be disclosed in the ad. It was to much for my husband to deal with. There is a balcony but no seating. The AC is to small and old to properly cool the space. There is a coffee maker but no directions to use it.

A beautifully restored historic building - this B&B is on the 3rd floor (no elevator). Overlooking the Plaza Stesicoro, in the heart of the historic city. It is above a bustling plaza but inside the room was very quiet. Lovely modern bathroom, nice designed. I couldn't figure out how to use the coffee machine - no instructions!

8/10 Very good

Nice place, great host
Great location, nice, clean place with all of the amenities. There is a fridge in the common area only and the doors are made of glass so you can hear anyone coming in and out of the flat. Also, it's on the fourth floor, I believe, so prepare yourself to carry up your suitcases.
