Good things: great, large breakfast of fruit, eggs, toast with butter and jam, coffee, and juice. Nice little pool for kids. The location is excellent-a couple blocks from the pedestrian street and withing walking distance to all Zona Colonial attractions. The staff was helpful and friendly.
Bad things: we had a room with a twin bed below and queen upstairs. The room was tiny and very cramped. The bathroom was so small that you have to sit sideways on the toilet. The stairs are incredibly steep. I felt the room was very overpriced. There is a jacuzzi on the roof but it is not heated. There was a room full of about 15 locals that partied until 1130pm and seemed to have just paid to stay for several hours. I will look for a different hotel when we return.
