The pros: great location in the centre of town and 5 minutes walk to the train station. Clean rooms, good beds, good bedside lighting, dinner, breakfast and a pisco sour all included in the price. I had read about the noise but I had a room next to the stairs and did not hear anything. Beautiful common areas and some juice available at reception.
The cons: hotel has a slight Eco feel to it. This means a deliberate policy to provide just enough toilet paper for one night, one towel per person (no hand towels), shower only no bath and the skimpiest of amenities (bath gel/ shampoo and lotion). Shower curtain is a loud admonition in five languages to re-use your towel. The other big con is the design, as it is on a slope there are stairs everywhere, which is fine, however they are open to the elements so if traveling during the wet season get very slippery. Staff don't seem to be too bothered to mop up, instead relying on warning signs.
