We recently stayed for three nights at this fantastic hotel. One of the early century properties that used to belong to Gangotena family and was converted into a boutique hotel. The historically significant Italianate mansion was befitted with all the modern facilities and located right on the Plaza San Francisco. Although we didn't have a plaza view room, we were given one of the two terrace rooms on the third floor which has a stunning view of the Angel of America from the window and the private terrace in the back. To view the plaza, we could simply stepped out of our room into a front terrace shared by the hotel guests although we never ran into any other guests during our stay. From there, the view of the plaza and the colonial cityscape was just breathtaking.
The staff of the hotel was extremely attentive and the daily replenished in-room fruit and desert plates was a very personal touch. The included breakfast went way over our expectation as the restaurant in the hotel was reputed to be one of the best in the old town. They also included afternoon high tea which just topped off everything else and made us feel really welcome and well taken care of.
Although there is no pool or gym on the property because it is after all a historical building, the location and the service made it up. Why do you need those anyway when you have an amazing colonial town at your door step to explore on foot?
