I stayed at the Hotel Espana in May 2013. It’s a great location right next to the San Francisco Monastery, and a short walk to the Plaza de Armas. The hotel is in an older building with lots of character and interesting artwork throughout. They have a nice courtyard/patio with a view of the Monastery and a collection of pets. The room was comfortable and the included breakfast was good. The pick-up at the hotel went smoothly. The hotel is an excellent value.
