We stayed for four nights at Casona del Patio and really enjoyed it there.
Overall the hotel was very clean and a nice place to stay. It was exceptionally good value as it is in the best of part of town and was actually cheaper than a hostel for us to stay in a double room with private bathroom.
The room we had was very nice and was clean. I am very fussy when it comes to cleanliness and even I walked around the room with no flip flops on which is something of a novelty of late staying in hostels!
They provide a small 'minibar' - not a normal minibar - its actually a few baskets on the side that have sachets of shampoo, tube of toothpaste, crisps and water etc but is cheap and handy if you forget something or run out whilst you are there.
We had a tv with cable which was useful and we did get wifi in our room which was very useful.
The room was cleaned daily and the towels replaced but they didn't change the bed clothes at all whilst we were there. They did however provide us with two extra pillows when we asked though.
There was a small sitting area opposite our room which was useful for sitting and Skyping family whilst my boyfriend was watching tv! It did have a glass roof which was quite noisy when it rained but otherswise was a nice little addition.
The only small issue we had is that they charge a lot for laundry and we therefore asked the reception staff where we could find a laundrette locally and they said they did not know which was very unhelpful! In fact there is one a few streets away but it takes a few days to get the clothes back so we didn't end up using it!
The staff on reception tend to speak English which is good but the level of helpfulness varies significantly!
If you go out for the night let the front desk know as we got back at midnight one night and had to knock for a good ten minutes before we got in! Saying that it shows what a nice neighbourhood it is that we felt completely safe walking around at that time!
The area is very pretty and clearly well to do which makes it feel very safe and is a pleasant place to have a stroll, there's a good supermarket two blocks away.
We ate dinner in the restaurant one night and it was not very good, I had the raviolli and it was very overcooked to the point that the filling was rock hard. My boyfriend had the chicken sandwich which was nice enough and there was plenty of it but nothing special. The breakfast was not very good and so even though it was included we only ended up having it the first morning!
All in all this is a good budget option and feels more like staying in a nice hotel than a hostel or budget hotel. I would definitely recommend staying here.
