It’s not next to anything in particular, but it’s close to so many things, which metaphorically describes the property’s quality as well as its geography. The old sugar and coffee trading company pays homage to its Caribbean roots with subtle decorative touches of parrots and palm trees. Rooms are on the small side; it’s less noticeable in those in the back building with private or shared terrace space or high ceilings. Top-floor rooms still have some original brick or wood and new hardwood floors; and most have marble-floored bathrooms. A courtyard pool is sweet if miniscule, but complimentary morning coffee and fresh-baked croissants, feather beds, in-room fridge and microwave, and good online discounts make up for a lot.
