We stayed here in August 2015. We found the accommodation poor and definitely not worth the money. The electric socket was hanging off the wall, bathroom was mouldy, toilet seat broken and stained, shower fittings rusty and room dirty. We were astonished at the TripAdvisor reviews. It is far from a four star. We were due to stay for a... More

Location is a main value for this hotel, close to most city attractions and restaurants. Rooms are nice but do not expect a view as it is all on the first floor. The swimming pool is very small so don't fantaisy too much on it. Nevertheless the staff is very nice and the place better than average for the price.... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights after our exhausting tour in Bolivia and we could really enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this hotel. The hotel is well situated, 10 minutes walking from the main square. The staff is really kind and helpful. The room was nice and well equipped but too dark and too close to the street.... More
