The place is very clean and modern. Good kitchen, good staff. There is no rooftop bar, or it is always closed. Not quite as depicted in the photos.
Visit the mojito bar across the street, great place.
The rest of the reviews are correct. There is so much construction noise. It starts around 6am and does not finish until midnight or after.
Also, the building structure makes any noise from downstairs funnel up into the bedrooms. Even people chatting at a reasonable level was amplified through the center courtyard thing and you could listen in on whole conversations on the second or third floor.
If you use the bathrooms opposite Plaza Herrera, the construction workers can look right into the bathroom windows, I learned this as I was doing my business on the toilet and got the awkward eye contact with one of the guys working on the high-rise next door. Did not really have anywhere to run at that point.... I made sure to shower on the opposite end of the building.
Maybe in a couple of years when the massive construction project is finished, I would return. Until then, I will not stay anywhere in Casco Viejo. (its only $3 taxi to downtown, so worth it!)
