- Out of the 2 beds in room, only 1 had clean-looking sheets. (I would have complained, but didn't, considering I didn't need to sleep in it.)
- No TV remote
- Slow room service
- No 24-hour pharmacy nearby (I mistakenly thought Benavides would be open all night.. WRONG.)
+- Traffic noise from Vallarta & Patria (though traffic noise doesn't bother me at all, it's worth noting for other travelers)
I spent the whole night worrying about bed bugs considering the dirty sheets in the other bed, but fortunately I made it out OK! Maybe the sheets were simply stained, but either way, the beds should never look dirty.
Next time I'll probably try the Arboledas a couple blocks down the street. It's closer to Galerias and newer.
Not recommended if you're unfamiliar with the city and want to spend most of your time downtown. Nonetheless, despite its shortcomings, I had a pleasant stay and would consider staying again in the future.
