Hotel may have had some grandeur some years ago, but is simply being operated in kind of an 'as-is' state at this point. Rooms are very tall and roomy and typical of this old style of buildings in an old European town. Beds are not very comfortable and hot water for a shower is available for only a few minutes before running out. Breakfast area is nice and location is central to the fish market. Very small staff but very friendly and helpful.
