The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly. As I have limited Spanish I was grateful for having front desk staff who spoke English. Although there is a main road out the front, because I had a rear room I spent a very restful night. Breakfast was comprehensive and good value. Best of all, there was free wifi throughout. My only issue is that the pool could have done with a better clean. But I would stay there again.

This is an older hotel located on a hillside on one of the main roads in and out of town - about a 10 minute taxi ride to the Zocolo. We stayed two nights over the Christmas holidays which is high season so the ONLY room available was a room w/no air-conditioning at a premium price on the backside of the hotel! Our room was supposed to be ready for check-in at 3:00pm but we ended up waiting around in the hotel lobby until 4:30 plus we had to pay one night's stay upfront!
The road noise outside our room was very loud but thankfully the weather at night was cool so we could close the window and use the ceiling fan. The bathroom was good sized and clean with a strong shower (nice!), beds were amazingly comfortable and wifi was included at no additional charge (very nice!). We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant which was nothing special plus the service was terrible ... we had to find a waiter to take our order!

Room Tip: Rooms on the front seem to be nicer & quieter

Just ten minutes walk from the cathedral, but at the same time secluded in a very quite area and with a nice garden around the different buildings. The rooms were spacious, and has a nace balcony overlooking the garden. Such a shame that there were no chairs - not on the balcony and not in the room. There were a few TV channels with english programs.
The bathroom was large and inviting - but the bathrooms share a ventilation shaft, which means that you can hear every word your neighbours say if your in the bathroom at the same time. First time I thought somebody was actually in our shower when I came in, and not in the next room. But it's not a big hazzel as long as you close the bathroom door.
The breakfast buffet was very good, and they make you the most wonderful eggs or omelets while you're waiting.
There was a gym at the hotel, which according to the information was open 24/7 - the problem was that I never maneged to locate the light switch... so I can't say wether it was OK or not.

Room Tip: Avoid being on the ground floor

I stayed there for one week, it's not a 4 stars hotel, but for the price is worth the stay.

Be careful of noisy rooms.

Internet doesnt work in the rooms.

Breakfast are rather poor.

Bit far away from downtown.

Pretty clean with cozy rooms.
