This hotel's decor is sort of Old World meets casbah in terms of decor - which I liked very much. Service is informal and friendly, and there are lots of interesting sitting areas around the hotel. Do not expect full-service. They serve brunch, but you're better off going to one of the many nearby restaurants. Keep in mind that there are no elevators in this hotel - you will be lugging your stuff up multiple flights of stairs. The rooftop has a nice view of El Castillo de San Cristobal, the huge fort by the ocean. The rooftop itself is not especially well-kept - it's hard to navigate through the plants & hoses. There are several large, modern bathtubs on the roof that I supposed are meant for soaking while you soak up the view - I didn't see anyone use them. Our room was suite-style with a second room containing the sleeper sofa and TV. The tiny bathroom (and I do mean tiny) opened onto both rooms. There is no shelf in the bathroom to put your toiletries when you're getting ready. They didn't have any blankets for the sleeper sofa, so my kiddo slept with sheets only. The area is full of night clubs, and you will hear people partying well into the wee hours of the morning on a weekend night, followed by the sounds of hundreds of beer bottles being thrown into the garbage. Overall, it's decent & a great location, but dated. We were only there one night. Probably not the best place for kids.
