Not well-marked on the street outside, you travel up a tight old world elevator to the 6th floor. This place is a quaint old world apartment with bulky ornate furniture and a huge chandelier in the breakfast room. If you get there before others, you can enjoy your food on the balcony, The food was basic but adequate, with coffee, juice, yogurt, some kind of cake, toast, and various hams and cheeses. They will fix you eggs if you ask. The lady we dealt with mostly spoke Spanish (as did my traveling partner) but this lady wasn't as educated or helpful as some have suggested here. Biggest problem was our air conditioner. If you leave your room in August, leave it on. It took 2 hours (and I do not exaggerate) to cool the room down at night (and we had no windows). Another issue was plugs for all the electronics stuff we modern travelers seem to need (camera, cell phones, and I have a sleep machine). There is ONE plug in the room. You can't even get to the nightstand lamp plugs. They were behind a wooden cover. It was exciting to see a computer with internet connection in a separate room. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Every day same story: "a technician is coming." We got back at midnight our first night and the key would not work despite two college-educated people trying to figure it out. It needs to be in a strange position. Ask before you leave. We stayed four days. They made the room up nicely each night but one day our iPhone cord got caught up in the maid's mop. We had to wake her again at midnight. She said she didn't know which room it went to. The shared bathroom wasn't much of an issue. Only had to wait shortly once. Bottom line: reasonable price, nice view, close to the underground train which takes you in 10 minutes to the action, nice non-hotel experience, but definitely 3 stars.
