The 104 Art Suites is a lovely, comfortable hotel in a safe, attractive, residential neighborhood with views of a park. Although not in the downtown business district, since you are likely to go everywhere by taxi or private car anyway, this hotel's less crowded location is still convenient for a long walk or short taxi ride to many restaurants and shops while providing a more graceful, peaceful setting. It is across the street from a lovely treed park and around the corner from another park, with beautifully landscaped smaller apartment buildings with doormen up and down the surrounding streets....a lovely place to live, even temporarily. A plus is that it is one block away from 15, a main street, but away from the noise. The staff is extremely helpful and the entire property is well kept.
Each apartment is different since they are all designed by particular artists, and they vary in size and view as well. We read the previous trip advisor reviews and requested a light bright room, not for sun time in the room, but because it warmed up the space during the day so that when we returned later the room was sun warmed in a country where there is little heating of buildings. We had a spacious suite with living room, kitchenette, bedroom, and one and a half baths. The artist who designed our particular room was somewhat minimalist and sculptural so the artwork was in the varied shapes of the walls and interesting niches. The room had a flat screen TV, balcony, fireplace and a giant bathtub...all great features.
The breakfast was buffet style but you could additionally order eggs of any style custom made. There were breads, cheese and ham, jelly, fresh fruits, juice and coffee, cereal, yogurt, and usually one hot item which changed daily, such as a chicken breakfast dish, humitas, tortillas, etc.
We stayed for 9 nights and were very comfortable in a home away from home with an extremely comfortable king sized bed with excellent linens. I highly recommend this hotel, especially for longer stays.
Note that it does not have a gym, pool, or outdoor seating area but they can provide gratis passes to a local gym. I would give this a 4.5 star rating but had to pick a 4 instead of 5 due to less faciilties. If you don't need them and want good peaceful comfort without flashy luxury this is your place.
