Behind the façade hides a beautiful and atmospheric hotel in colonial style. The rooms are arranged around 2 courtyards: the 1st courtyard serves as parking for guests, the 2nd is a lawn with terrace seats where you can have breakfast or enjoy the sun. The hotel is situated just within the borders of the city centre; it is about a 10 minutes’ walk to the heart of centre.
The rooms are tastefully decorated, also in colonial style. The beds are comfortable and pretty oversized. The rooms have a modern, clean bathroom that meets Western standards, with a well-controllable shower and big fluffy towels. And what a luxury to have toilet paper in abundance, for the first time after two weeks of travel in Mexico and Guatemala! It was a bit bothersome though that all towels were collected in the morning and the clean towels were not delivered until the afternoon.
The hotel has good breakfast with the usual choices. The cup of yoghurt on the side was a nice surprise.
