This place was great. I spent two nights here in April 2013 and was very pleased. My room was clean, it was away from the main street and therefore quiet (except for one night when there was a birthday party but that was fine because we all ended up being invited!), and breakfast was simple, tasty, and peaceful. For unlimited coffee, really fresh fruit, eggs, and toast, served in a garden in the hotel, for $5, what's not to like?
If I can find one negative, it's that you're a bit far from the down town area, but really only a 15-20 minute walk. There are excellent restaurants right around the corner.
I was even able to book a nice city tour through this hotel, with pick up and drop off at the hotel. Definitely worth it.
J. Ernesto was great to deal with, and extremely pleasant. Great guy.
I'd stay there again, for sure.
