This is a small boutique hotel in the Colonial District. The rooms are a good size although there are only 11 or 12 in total. After we checked in on a Sunday afternoon and finished a late lunch we came back to find the room was without water. After about an hour the manager Ramon came and explained that the... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel. The staff were so friendly and always willing to help and provide local recommendations for restaurants etc. The WiFi was a bit temperamental throughout the hotel, so took a bit of patience.

The swimming pool, though small is immaculate and inviting after a day walking the cobble stones of the colonial zone, The hotel is situated a block and a half from Calle El Conde... More

We recognize what your saying and we appreciate the fact that we are an even priced hotel, that would suit a customer's needs at the time of booking. We always welcome business people that understand their own needs, and we welcome people that want to explore the colonial zone area and make their stay as enjoyable as possible. More

The setting is perfect in the colonical zone and the villa is beautiful with graceful old fashioned features, a park like courtyard and colonade. The staff are friendly and warm. The room was a single, which was big, with a generous bathroom - big plush towels. The toilet did not flush well, but everything worked. WiFi was slow but free.... More

Nice little hotel, old building, artistic decor. Very nice staff, one particular employee (prob manager) was very helpful. The only minor thing was that the a/c wasn't working too well in my little corner unit on the second floor. Besides I spotted some mold on the wall there. My advice would be - try to get rooms on the first... More

With a bad start to our stay (the hotel forgot to send a car to pick us up from the airport) it only got better. The hotel is hidden behind tall doors on a small street in Zona Colonial. We left to look for dinner around 10 pm and were delighted that we could walk to our destination safely. We... More
