Location = excellent - it's in the centre of town next to Soda Visquez (super) and Soda El Rio (very good)
Room = excellent (noting the price which is budget/low mid range). It is clean and ample in size.
Service = fantastic. This is where this place shines. Manrique is the young concierge ad he is unbelievably helpful. He remembered every guest's name that I recalled but more importantly (for me) assisted with every tour I took and he made all the right recommendations - the volcano tour, the hot springs and most of all the whitewater rafting tour. All connections were arranged to other towns quickly and efficiently. It is 5 star service.
The rooms looking over the volcano can attract a bit of road noise but I didn't find it objectionable.
Breakfast is basic but adequate (and included in the price). This is a place for getting on with things and not lingering around your hotel though.
An easy place to recommend to fellow Trip Adivisees.
