The pool area is a little small & on some occasions dominated by cruise liners docked across the river. All the rooms were well air conditioned & the bathrooms &... More

I wanted to stay in zona colonial area but I was not blown away by the choices or reviews. In my hotel glossary, terms like 'quaint', 'character' and 'surrounded by history' are defined by leaky roofs, substandard infrastructure and creaky old beds. So this hotel was a huge surprise for me. Hostal Nicolas is very well maintained. Located in 2... More

I was there for 3 days and my experience was very good, staff very friendly and service orientated... Beautiful colonial deco and atmosphere, rooms are comfortable and quiet but the best is that you are located in the heart of the colonial city... And it is gorgeous... Will definitely give back....

First of all I'll start by saying the hotel is lovely, clean and we were impressed. However on our first morning we went down to the breakfast buffet we thought was included (the lonely planet said so). It was a great spread, but I ate some fruit, ham, cheese, bacon and potatoes. My husband had basically the same thing but... More
