“Don't go there!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Althought the prices are low, the hotel is not still worth of it. Electricities are unsafe. There is no hot water in the shower. Bathroom is disgusting. And the housekeepers steal money, perfume, jewelry etc. While you're away. They don't clean the rooms at all. And if you leave your luggage to "luggage room" for a day you will find your bags opened.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

After booking before reading reviews I was a bit alarmed to hear this hotel hadn't had particularly good ratings. So turned up expecting the worst. It was absolutely FINE. We had a nice spacious upstairs unit with balcony overlooking the central courtyard area. There was a fan and air conditioning in the room. The bed was comfortable, and the room was clean enough. Not spotless. But clean and tidy. The shower floor was a bit grubby - so we just wore our jandals (flip flops) in the shower. I have to say the breakfast was one of the better we had in south America. The bread rolls were DELICIOUS. The pool is a bit dark, but that is because the tiles are dark - therefore the water looks dark. So don't be expecting a crystal azure pool or you will be disappointed. It is so handy only 2 min walk to the bus station, and only 5-10 mins walk to the historical center of town. This place served us well. It was very reasonably priced compared to others. I would say good value for money.
