I really loved this place, and what made it great was Bertrand the owner. Such a nice genuine guy who really had a great personality that instantly made you feel at home. Bertrand is from Switzerland so speaks english, french and spanish fluently. He was so hospitable and also helped me plan the rest of my trip - he knows South America very well, definitely follow his advice.
I wasn't happy with my room downstairs and moved to the room upstairs which I would thoroughly recommend - the view was amazing, the shower was hot and powerful and bed was comfortable. It was very cold however on the first night without a heater so do make sure they give you one. Once I had a heater, the temperature in the room was fine. Location was great too and just a 5 minute walk from the main plaza. I have to admit however the only downside was the shower when I had to move back downstairs for the last night. I believe it was as simple as putting on the generator switch for the shower but these rooms downstairs are far more basic with little lighting for a fussy traveller like myself. The wifi connection was strong throughout, even upstairs. Breakfast was included and was fine but it would be great if they could provide juice for those like myself that do not drink tea or coffee. There was also access to the kitchen which was average. I would say that overall the accommodation is average but the service was excellent.
The other places I stayed at in my trip where I would recommend without any hesitation are those that I have awarded 5 stars. If someone had recommended these places to me I would have saved a lot of time researching so I'd be more than happy to help future travellers. I had a great trip to South America and these places were the best I stayed. If you would like any info or have any questions, please let me know.
