hotel Santo Tomas is one of those "could this be?" experiences. From the street, it's just some wrought iron gates. Inside the front door, it's warm and inviting, with excellent staff greeting you and a pleasant lobby. Then you begin wandering corridors inside --- there's a nice smaller swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a nice restaurant/bar area, and several very nice sitting areas when you want to be outside your room. We rented a Superior Plus room, upstairs, paid about $ 78 including taxes. It was a very nice room, very thoughtfully laid out. My wife loves a dresser with mirror outside the bathroom --- had that. i like a larger shower with higher shower head --- had that. I like a lockable space for money or passports --- had that. Comfortable queen bed, nice bathroom, very clean --- had those too. I know that some people like the Marriott experience --- expensive, plastic, "just like the United States." For the rest of us, this is a great place. It's only about 5 blocks to the center of the city, several good restaurants nearby (don't miss Cafe Mundo!!) I needed three more nights of reservations later in our trip, and I made them here.
