Basically too expensive for what you're getting. There is no wifi on the 3rd floor so if that matters for you request a room on first or second. If you're using one of the online bookers, make no assumptions that the room you get is like the one you wanted. The friendly staff speak no english but i got by...

Worst place ever!. Better match with cheap hostel. Pictures on the web are far from reality. Dirty, smelly, mold on the walls. Moskitos all around. Bathroom was awful. Breakfast was a joke: mini empanada, mini juice, mini coffee. TV in every room the size of a tablet!

The location is amazing. But the pictures where obviously done by a professional who brought in lighting. My biggest issue is the lack of lighting, I am using my phone's flashlight to apply my makeup. I hope it all looks better in the morning.

Although people from service was smily and nice, our room was nothing compared with the photos of the rooms they post. Was ugly. Bathroom was awful, really small, cheap. There's no closet to put your belongings. There was no water in the freezer. Bed was ok, not uncomfortable. Not recommend if you have a baby or a toddler and need...

Booked a room, which got ¨cancelled¨. I was given another room in terrible conditions, had to go to a hostel. Hotel was not at all as depicted in the site. The hotel declined to refund money even though they couldnt give me the room that had been booked.

Amazing location in the heart of the historic town. Walking distance from a large number of restaurants and attractions. Rooms are ok. The bathroom was not totally clean when we entered, also we were missing towels and we waited for a couple of hours until they got them to our room. Minor details. You go to this hotel for the...

The hotel is going to be nice. It appears they just took over a hotel that was thee previous and are redoing everything. The hotel is small but nice, they have the first floor completed but are working on the floors above. Our room was on the first floor and it was nice. Large and had a huge shower in...

Lovely boutique hotel with great location. Thoughtful touches in décor and good personality. Kind service. Rooms are original and somehow small but quaint and well appointed, however they are terribly isolated. Did not sleep any of the three nights that was there, the first room I had at first seemed idyllic as it had a balcony with a view towards...

It has a dismal style. It's scary. I've never seen a hotel turn off their lights after 23:00 or 24:00. When we arrived we wait for the charge is the best of the hotel, we turn on the lights to go up to the room. The worst thing is that if we lose we do in the dark for a...
