The location is perfect -- right in the Centro Historico and a couple blocks walk to all the major sights, with several restaurants and shops nearby, and a convenience store across the street.
The staff was friendly, spoke good English, and let us check in early because they were not full. The room was large and had been recently renovated, with new floors, paint, furniture, and computer-controlled systems.
The hotel lacked in finishing touches. It was a shame to see how nicely they had renovated the rooms, but they still had older (lumpy) pillows, and towels that were well worn. Not the end of the world, but a couple more pesos spent on little things would have finished it off and brought it up a notch. The sunken courtyard area outside the room, for example, only had Astroturf in it. They could have finished it off with some potted plants, chairs, etc. Something.
Only problem we had was with the AC. It was not very effective -- it cooled, but barely. It was only a one-night stay, so we just dealt with it. Had the weather been hotter, it would have been problematic.
The windows let in a lot of noise from the outside -- cars, carriages, etc., so if you're a light sleeper, be aware of this. It wasn't a problem for us.
Overall, I'd stay here again. The location simply can't be beat.
