Stayed in one of the double rooms for two nights. Run by a kind couple that really look after their guests and are super helpful. Showed up exhausted at 3am after a long bus ride and they were accommodating and warm. Our room was super clean, simple but solid breakfast. A little away from the main tourist hub (meaning about...

The old couple running this hostel were absolutely wonderful and helped with everything we needed, We stayed at ground floor room on the right. The room is small, but very clean and fully furnished. Pay attention that you have to wait several minutes for hot water. We ran into some heavy rain during our visit and much of our clothes... More

We stayed in this hotel between dec 31 to 2nd January. The inn was good. The room is big and clean as well as the bathroom. But there are some inconveniences. During our stay we didn't have any cleaning service or towel exchange. One of our light switch in the room had a short circuit which was kind of dangerous... More

When we arrived the hotel couldn't find ojr reservation booked through tripadvisor, but luckily had a room. The location was great, near the carfree street. We stayed there for three nights during x-mas. The room was kinda small but ok. Ok beds and clean. The drawback was the temperature. The floors were icecold. There also was a scent of sewer,...

We wanted to give this place 5/5 because of the people working here, who were incredible. They let us park our car in their gated driveway, security is great, location is great (very short walk to everything), the breakfast was included and was very good, and did I mention how nice they were!?! They couldn't stop bending over backward to... More

I went to San Cristobal with my parents, my sister and niece this summer. We had a wonderful stay at Posada Sancris. The service was excellent. Both Ernesto and Ofelia attended to us very well. The place is rustic and provides a good feel for the city. Furthermore, we enjoyed the clean rooms and comfortable beds. Wireless internet worked well... More
