We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, the owner, Don Victor, is a very nice and kind man; her wife, Rosita runs the business.

I have mixed feelings about this place. For a budget hotel that only costs 35.000 pesos a night, the room was quite nice. It was nicely painted, and the natural light was pleasant.
