Small and homely hotel in a charming 1920s mansion, with just eight rooms surrounding plant-filled courtyards.

The charming budget Hotel San Basilio is tucked away on a narrow residential street, yet only two blocks from the main square and a short walk away from most of the main sights in the city centre. The helpful staff imbue this small hotel with a welcoming, homely atmosphere.

Set within a renovated 1920s mansion with a beautiful cream and jade façade, there are just eight simple but spacious rooms surrounding two plant-filled interior courtyards. Each has antique furniture and a private bathroom.

There is a small public restaurant and a bar kitted out in atmospheric Cuban style, while high ceilings and lovely tile work add touches of elegance.
