This may not be the easiest place to find, even with a GPS. But it's worth the effort because it's just a few minutes walk from the major sights and good restaurants. The staff was very helpful and arranged a taxi to take us to a super restaurant for a memorable dinner.

Museums are starting to open up whenever funding is made available and live music and art ...
... All makes the quarter lovely! We'd like to get in the largest mosque in the city, but there's a service, so we just furtively watch the scenes unusual for us.
