We had a good 3-night stay here and loved the decor and the size of our corner room (named 'quizás quizás quizás'). But - and there is a big but if this matters to you - it is not quiet at all: in the rooms facing the courtyard you hear other guests' comings and goings and for rooms facing the street, you hear traffic and shouting on Hidalgo. Glass screens are thin and the building is a little old in general. We couldn't get wifi in our room at all, but just 3 metres from our door it was fine, which was frustrating. The hot water takes 20 mins to come (!) out of a weak shower and the bathroom is in desperate need of refurbishment. Their 'beach club' is 15 mins walk away, even through the actual beach is 100 metres away.
However, the service here is very friendly and staff are extremely helpful. Get the right room, at a good rate (under $60) and this could work for you.
