Really, it is all a matter of perspective how highly you rate a hotel. For a traveller used to reasonably good quality hotels, then there is little doubt that Hotel 59 would be a disappointment. However, if you were a backpacker, then Hotel 59 may impress. I can't help thinking that most of the better reviews are from travellers who fall into the latter category. I was seduced by the good reviews and foolishly interpreted them as describing a small boutique type establishment, a real hidden gem. I was sadly (and hugely) disappointed as in reality it is very down at heel and attention to detail is not top priority - for instance, no bathroom cleaning during the three day stay we had.
The location was fine.
The proprietor was low-key but pleasant.
The breakfast is plentiful if you appreciate a "fry up" style.
I am sure this family run business is trying its best - but let's not kid ourselves that it is something it isn't.
