La Marquise de Bassano

Top choice b&b in Old Town & Port

The young, gregarious owners have done a beautiful job with this welcoming 19th-century Victorian family home, outfitting its five rooms with thoughtful touches, whether it’s a canopy bed or a claw-foot bathtub. It's peacefully placed on a low-traffic street surrounded by period homes, minutes from the important sights. Only two rooms have private baths; the other three share facilities.

Breakfast includes fresh croissants and pastries, meats, hard-boiled eggs, cheese and fruit. Parking nearby, including two spaces just outside the hotel, costs $16 to $22 per night.
