Hostal San Martín
Lonely Planet review
In a splendid central position, this recently overhauled 18th-century building has light, airy rooms painted in candy colours with small terraces. The spotless bathrooms have excellent water pressure and tubs, as well as showers. There's a comfortable sitting area and the friendly owner can provide advice and a map.
