The Hotel Federale is a nice hotel close to the city center. It had the feeling of a once very formal upscale hotel with high ceilings and a grand marble staircase. We visited in August so it was very warm and the rooms are not air conditioned. There was a fan which helped but it was still very warm. We had requested a room for 4 and we were really squeezed in to the room that already had too much furniture before the extra beds. We slept with the windows open due to the heat and the noise and fumes from the cars on the street were not appealing. The staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke english so this was very helpful. The parking was a bit difficult and pricey. The breakfast was good but nothing too spectacular.
