I stayed at the Mecure about 3 times for a total of about 6 nights in a 12 day period. I went to the room and it smelled musty. I went to the front desk and asked about this. The person at the desk acted as though they had no idea of what I was talking about. She let me check out several rooms, but all of them had a smell. I went out and bought a room deodorizer and that helped some. I selected a room in the back corner of the 3rd floor and it was quiet and as others have mentioned the air conditioning does provide very cold air in great quantities. That was OK with me. The shower is a “step” up and with the slick tiles be a little careful getting in and out. There was a wide variety of channels on the old model TV. Good Wi-Fi in the rooms.
The rooms vary a bit in upkeep. On one stay I had an interior room on the 5th floor and I thought that was the best room I stayed in (little or no smell). There is a refrigerator in each room. I found the breakfast pretty good. I thought the pastries were very nice. The other meals I ate there were average. I find El Conde a little bit seedy. Not much the hotel can do about that. I felt the hotel itself was pretty secure. I would have stayed there more nights, but on weekends it seemed to be booked up. Some of the staff understands little or no English, but usually there is someone who can sort things out.
