“Beautiful building, but noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

Do not stay here if you need a 2 double bed room. One side of the hotel with 2 double bed rooms has a bar that plays loud music until nearly 3am, and the other side of the hotel with 2 double bed rooms is facing the square, where at 6am there is a flag raising ceremony everyday, complete with drums and bugle. Worst was the fact that the front desk pretended to not know where the sound was coming from, and when asked if the Zocalo had the flag raising ceremony everyday, they lied and said that they were unsure. Unless these two receptionists were on the first day of the job, there is no way that they did not know about the daily ceremony.
