    This Hostal is pretty nice. It´s quite a steep hike to get there or down to the city - about 125 steps. The rooms were clean and they had a space heater there for us (which really came in handy). The walls were a little thin. We could hear people very clearly even though they weren´t being loud. Altogether a nice, cheery stay.

Our ...

    ... is now impossible to open the passenger door without the door rubbing against the fender. The damage clearly wasn't there with we left the car. Someone maliciously hit the car door. Within seconds, the attendant comes back and says he checked with his shop and knows what it cost to repair the damage. Yeah right. I point out we have purchased full insurance, with all deductibles paid down to zero. He says that the insurance doesn't cover it, ...

    You were allowed to take photos inside as long as you didn't use a flash.

    It was a truly beautiful house inside with a fabulous collection of 19th and 20th century art.
