My wife and I stayed one night in early May. The room was very large and had a balcony that overlooked the plaza--great for people-watching and enjoying the street musicians. The building is old but well kept, and the desk staff are very helpful and seem proud to work there.
Small deficiencies: the elevator is small and slow, the room had a drip coffeemaker but no coffee, and the pastry shop in the lobby--plan B for morning coffee--was staffed by only one person who was overwhelmed by the number of patrons. We gave up and set out on foot to find another place for breakfast.
