A note about my five stars. I rate based on how the reviewee (a hotel in this case) scores in relation to other like hotels (in this case "boutique hotels") within the category (in this case, hotels). The Nu House cannot compete with a The Ritz, but it does against others in the boutique segment.
We did not stay long at the Nu House. Our flight got in around 10:30 and after gathering the luggage and the drive to the hotel we did not get into our rooms until after midnight. Also, we were flying to the Galapagos early the next morning so our wakeup call was set at 4:30 AM.
That said, I liked the place for what it is. It was clean and the people at the front desk were helpful, friendly and attentive to our situation. The man at the front desk set up our return shuttle, made the wakeup call and had a box lunch ready for us when we got downstairs (because we were going to miss the free breakfast). They also have free wifi.
Here is the possible down side to the hotel. It is right on a busy square. There were people in the square eating, drinking and dancing until very late. There are rooms closer to the square and some that are on the other side of the building. We arrived on Friday night/Saturday morning so maybe it’s just a weekend event. The noise did not bother me; I enjoyed hearing the revelry and slept well.
Two of us went down after checking in to get something to eat. We chose to sit on the patio of the restaurant that is attached to the hotel. The menu was all Spanish and the only server that spoke English was a Cuban girl who spoke very little. Despite this, we ordered drinks and dinner and enjoyed the food, music and dancing.
All in all I can't complain. The hotel was clean, the people helpful and the price was reasonable (I think we paid $80-100 a room).
