I usually do not leave comments or anything of the sort on hotels I have visited, but this one experience made me change my ways ! I think that is the only good thing that came out of this experience. The most difficult thing was how to write this review because Im not sure where to start. When you get... More

First off, "sueno espanol" means "spanish dreams" not that that is important, but I was curious my whole stay there. And for anyone who stays here, it is hard to find, and look for the Taj Mahal restaurant (which all local taxis seem to know well by name), and then go up the hill and turn a corner at a... More

I had a pleasure booking a room for friends of mine, a couple, who stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. They said they liked the place very much as it was quiet (the lady is pregnant with twins), comfortable and romantic as they got a fireplace in their room!! It was also well secured which is important in San... More

Very poor instalations, a lot of noise, no sense of customer services and very dirty room. I was very disappointed. The TV in the room did not work, and the restaurant is in poor shape. It is probably better for this hotel to go out of business

Don Joaquin, at the restaurant, was a very nice person and went out on his ways to be welcoming with us. The hotel was in need of renovation and maintenance. Probably because of low season, almost there was no staff in the hotel. The second afternoon, I finally met a receptionist for the first time. My room wasn't arranged/cleaned during... More

I greatly appreciated the large room, comfortable bed, general cleanliness, although some fixtures, door knobs and other details seem worn and require repair or replacement. A working desk in the room would also have been appreciated. Staff was very helpful and friendly, and the house cook prepared a daily complementary and satisfying breakfast (scrambled eggs, toast, coffee and juice) as... More

I selected this place because it was supposedly near the airport and offered airport shuttle Advertised as providing "airport shuttle." No shuttle was offered when I called nor when I requested a return one for the next morning. They said what "airport shuttle" meant was "they could call you a taxi." I ended up having to pay RT taxi to... More

Dear Customer , we regret greatly that your stay at our Hotel was not pleasant . The misunderstanding he had with the shuttle service from Airport to Hotel, he commented that: exactly your booking we charge the amount of $59.89 after deducting 25% COMMISSION for Internet Reservations Portal, where you made your reservation, which means that if we had offered...

The shower has black gunk coming off in pieces on the floor, and there were buildups of mold in the corners of the shower, around the sink handles, etc. I showered with my... More

I liked this hotel. But the location was not very nice. =no shops at all in 1.3km. There is no fridge in any room. I don't think one should pay this much money for this bad location. But if you want to stay around this property for a while= like we did stay for a week. And if you could... More
