This was a marvelous place to stay. The location was in a quiet, nice neighborhood a little north of the center, but an easy (and delightful) 15- to 20-minute walk downtown. 5-10 minutes by bus, which you can catch a block away. Plenty of little places to eat in the neighborhood as well.
The rooms are not fancy but are everything you need -- you have your own bathroom, the bed is comfortable, and the rooms are kept *spotless.* There is an absolutely beautiful courtyard with birds (parakeets in cages as well as ones that fly free in the trees) and the occasional very shy cats. You also get a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt and granola (and coffee or tea).
The Wi-Fi can sometimes be a little spotty if you are in a corner of the room, but works fine if you sit by the window (and there's a comfortable chair in your room to do so). If it's nice out, you can sit in the courtyard, which is a real treat to begin with.
This is a family-owned place, and the owner is very helpful, and just a lovely person altogether. I'm sure you can find more luxurious accommodations, but I don't know if you can find a nicer place to stay.
