Nice rooms and environment, very clean place. The only complain is the sound isolation, you can hear the people from the halls like if they were inside. The price and location are totally recommended.

The hotel is conveniently located with easy access. Is basic but properly kept. What make me rate so low was the front desk service (assisted by a manager or supervisor). They were rude to us and the next people in line when doing the check in. The rest of the staff was fair and hard workers, but no sense of... More

Starting with the only plus: this "hotel" is located in a nice area. And that's it, what I've experienced in this run down flophouse is beyond words: Don't expect anyone to look at you or show any interest in you upon arrival, or at any time else. You don't speak Spanish ? Might be a problem as literally no one... More

This all-glass/modern looking hotel is converted from an apartment building (over a 2 year period of time & visits, I watched it's transformation). I believe it's got 100+ rooms & because I knew a desk clerk who used to work at the New York Bagel Cafe, I got to see a couple rooms shortly after they opened. The Lobby is... More

A mediocre hotel if you book on a travel site and avoid full price. Stayed there for the first and last night of my trip and both times the wifi was allegedly down. It's not the best but certainly not the worst either. Safe didn't work in the room.

Average hotel. Rooms comfortable and clean. Helpful desk! Hotel is showing its age and could do with some maintenance. We had constant problems with the key card/lock. Included breakfast was basic but OK! Coffee, fruit and fruit loops! Booked it as it was only 5 minutes walk from the metro! Not required as taxis are p!eantiful and cheap! Definitely the... More

Room was decent, comfortable bed. WiFi was spotty in my room. Also, no ice machines available in each floor, and only two floors with ice containers. No breakfast included was also dissaponting, but the hotel's location and proximity to the Metro System is a plus. All in all decent value.

Good service, they have a nice swiming pool, restaurants around it, nice places to eat, I like the place cause is close to casinos and comercial places, so you can walk aroud it. They have free wifi, and rent cars just in the same building

The only bad thing was that the room was supposed to have a refrigerator according to the room characteristics and it didn't. They wanted to charge an extra fee for it. They told me that was a new hotel policy.

Comfortable king size bed. Nice to have mini fridge in room. Mini safe also. Did not eat at restaurant, but one in hotel as well as a bar, nice additions also. Area good, but needed taxi at night to go to restaurants. Shower had two marble floor surfaces, one not slippery but the other very smooth and very slippery. Overall... More
