The other reviews are correct --- this is an old lady, but charming, clean and right in the plaza. We were able to visit a variety of small museums a few blocks away.
The beds are comfortable. A refrigerator in room. Ice maker. The pool is very adequate and helpful after walking around the hot concrete sidewalk. Parking off street is right behind hotel.
The coffee was excellent: if you like pastry/donuts for breakfast you'll like their breakfast. The rooftop looks out to the mountains.
The staff is kind, generous. A nice experience.
FYI the cathedral across the street is not open to tourists. It opens for Mass, and then closes. I even had a policeman check with a priest! And still we never did get inside.
