Score from 18 reviews Good
Value for money, a few blocks from center.
Room without window, so it was so humid. Basic furnishings.
staff was great
Poor location, very busy streets all around, noisey. No hot water at times. Over priced for the value. 2 ** at best
The location and the staff treatment
The shower. The water was too hot or too cold and the curtains made the water come out and wet everything around.
The staff 5reception and restaurant)could not have been more helpful, friendly and nice. The hotel was nice, especially the breakfast room which has great views. The breakfast was great.
The location is good but I felt uncomfortable walking around the area after dark. But the main downfall for me was how thin the walls were. We could hear our neighbours conversations and coitus at 4am and got no sleep at all. I also asked to be moved to a bedroom that wasn't facing the street as the latter was too noisy.
Large clean room. Hot water for showers. Breakfast included.
Had to go outside my room for wi-fi. Strong smell of disinfectant in room.
Very good location of the hotel... Centre is few minutes away. Stuff is very helpful and provides all the info you need. Rooms are nice.
Rooms are a bit humid, not much of light and air, but fan was good enough. Internet did not work well in the rooms, only in the lobby.
I stayed for one night. Awoke in morning with multiple bug bites, likely bed bugs. Am incredibly disappointed with this hotel and will be contacting them to formally complain.
Good location very near the city center. Friendly staff. Clean and cozy room.
Very noisy. You can hear cars the whole night and also what people is taking and doing in the corridor.
hotel looks nice, the bed and internet were very good and staff were friendly, good breakfast Location good 10min walk to centre and busstation mepe
In the morning i didnt had warm water, a cold shower is not something you should have in a 3 star hotel You could see that they renovated the hotel only the necessary, like still the old sink and old tiles on the wall with a brand new floor for example
It was actually way more than I had expected for the price. The locals were sceptical about the location but for me it was not disturbing in any way. The room was alright, clean, quite big, nice staff, good breakfast, hot water, central location, working wifi. I would come back there. Normal budget hotel.
Staff was very nice to me
"Cold" atmosphere in the room
For us was perfect. Complete value for money. Staff incredible
Poor wifi in rooms
no free parking
Helpful, friendly, English speaking staff, especially Jorge and Andrea. Good breakfast included in room price. Clean.
Lot of traffic noise in front of hotel, book a room on the back side of hotel. Have patience with hot water...it works but sometimes it goes cold temporarily (probably due to someone flushing a toilet elsewhere in hotel) but returns if you just wait a minute or two.
Price is fair Secure place Nice hotel concept Food was OK
Staff charged $30 more per night to sleep 4 ( 1 Extra ) in 1 bedroom with a full bed,no extra pillow nor bed sheets. No air flow,A/C, Humid and smelly rooms. Food was OK
Best value around for the area. Jorge and Andrea at the front desk are kind and willing to help with anything you need. Both speak English very well. Rooms are a little basic but clean and comfortable, TV and WIFI work well, close to downtown. Breakfast was good, Eduardo looks after you with a smile. Great all around value and service.
Would recommend requesting a room at back side of hotel away from the front as there is a lot of bus traffic noise there. But I had no issues with noise in my room on the back side of the hotel.
Friendly staff, good location not far from city centre, very good breakfast
No shampoo nor hair dryer in the bathroom.
Staff were great, very helpful even packed us breakfast to to go as we had an early bus the next morning. Wifi was good, beds comfy and price was better than a lot of hostels we'd stayed in.
The city itself
The girl from the lobby was lovely and always helpful. The lobby is nicely decorated, some basic complementary services like a bar with lasagne for heating up, etc. are offered.
Stayed on the 3rd floor and had a room basically without daylight. It was quite noisy in the morning as frontdoor and ground do not match.
Near down town
nice decor,clean rooms,friendly staff.i'll stay again and again.
just location around the hotel is not safe but this hotel is only couples of blocks from downtown
The guy at the frint desk was extremely helpful and friendly. good location also, just a few blocks from downtown, and located onthe central street so everything is within walking distance. Food was good too, and the breakfast at the top offers a delightful view also.
The hotel staff went out of their way to help us with many things, directions, calling taxis, taking messages, translating for us. We all loved the decor of the hotel, very refreshing. Included breakfast was a surprise considering the rates for the hotel.
The mold on the bathroom walls around the sink.
