What we say: 4 stars

As soon as you walk up the stairs and in through the grand entrance of Le Calao Inn you know you’ve stumbled onto something good. This old colonial hotel has undergone far fewer renovations than many other colonial hotels in town and as a consequence it feels like you’re stepping back 50 years or so into a different age. Of course, with this unrenovated feel comes some issues like the rickety old doors to the balcony and the strange plumbing visible in the bathrooms. These issues for some will add to the charming nature of this grand old hotel while others will feel that it needs to be modernised to represent good value. Us? We think it’s magnificent and the perfect way to slip back in time. Free WiFi and big flat screen TV included.
