The hotel is situated at the edge of the historical city center. For the main square you need 20 minutes on foot. The object in general has been restored wonderfully and is a real jewel. We had a huge corner room (Nr. 11) which had no A/C which we assume applies to all rooms. We did not miss it due to the hotel's height of about 3900 ft (1200 m) above sea level. The pool is reachable across the parking lot. The room equipment is not antique but outdated. Instead of bedside tables there had been fold-up tables. This would not have been a problem if they would have been horiziontally. We could not place there our watch let alone a drinking glass whether empty or full. For another fold-up table opposite the same applied. The safe in the closet was blocked by a nearly head-high ventilator, I did not want to move it. No mosquito blind was mounted neither on the interior or exterior side of the lower part of the balcony door, which had only horizonal blinds for fresh air circulation. The telephone is relay-based whioch does not allow value-added services such as the control of your voicemail. The staff was very helpful but unprofessional. There was only one person speaking English. The rest communicated with us via an electronic translation system. Upon arrival I was "greeted" with the request for a signature on a credit card slip. Later on I realized it was for the down-payment made months ago.The clarification of this resulted in a big confusion for the payment with new payments and promised reimbursements. Breakfast was Brazilian average (taking in account that we had been obviously the only guests for that night). But it is irritating if the kitchen assistant is greeting you upon arrival and just before we finished our breakfast is asking if we would like some eggs.
