This place is awesome. The whole team is so friendly and helpful. And the place is the complete opposite of a boring institutional hotel. The rooms are comfortable, the sitting areas and the bar are very inviting, and the garden area is a great place to watch hummingbirds. And easy walking distance to a range of shops and restaurants. They'll... More

This is a very comfortable small family run posada in a quiet neighborhood. Within walking distance to city amenities - restaurants, stores, ATM's etc. A great place to relax after leaving or heading to the airport - just what one wants/needs at that time. The staff was helpful about finding city services and the breakfast was excellent.

It was quite quaint, well appointed, and clean. Where this hotel fell down was in service and follow through. The phone in my room did not work.

Our family of four really loved this place. Behind the simple entrance lies an oasis of calm and warmth. Rooms are nice, and there is a spacious layout to sit, read, socialize, lounge on a hammock, etc. The owner is very warm and helpful, and has EXCELLENT taste in music!! All in all, a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
