As it is quite close to the pier you have 2 things you have to see quite close to each other. Amazing atmosphere and really nice place to take pics. Follow thestyriantraveller on fb and instagram.

You have to visit here and it is a good location to stay if you choose well but it is very busy and lots of tourist shops and street performers, also lots of homeless begging for cash so be prepared.

I'm sorry I don't know the answer as I don't travel with a pet. But what I would do is call a few hotels and ask if you can bring your pet. They would also know which hotels in the area allow pets.
