The location of this hotel is perfect, right in the center of town, with an adjacent bar and lovely courtyards. Room was fine too, in a guest house sort of way. We arrived early afternoon and took a few minutes to compare prices of 3-4 hotels around the same block, which were all similar and about US$50-70.
After we spent two nights at the Santa Clara we met friends who recommended their hotel – El Cerrillo, a few minutes walk to the north, which was similar but cost only $25. It also had nice courtyards with very lively parrots and the room was almost same standard as the Santa Clara. We felt silly paying double for no good reason so we moved.
In short, the Santa Clara is surely adequate but like several other hotels right next to the central square we found it to be overpriced compared to alternatives a few blocks away. San Cristobal is such a great town and almost everything is walking distance inside an area of about 6 or 7 blocks, so anywhere on that grid would be good location.
