“Lovely staff, off the beaten track location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The staff was lovely, the hotel a bit funny. Trying very hard, lovely rooms, very expensive, and in the historic district, the Candelaria. It is near the Banco Republica museum and a cool restaurant called Edgardo. However, the area is a bit sketchy at night. But it is sure to change! There seem to be exciting developments there. The decor in the breakfast room over the top. Loved the library and the little courtyard.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room, away from the stairs and elevator.
