We booked here based on TA reviews, and it was exactly like we expected it to be. BVL is an old building, but it is well maintained and very clean.
We were upgraded to a suite, which had 3 beds in 2 rooms. The bed in the main room was very comfortable, but the 2 beds in the back bedroom were hard as a rock. Our room had a mini fridge, microwave & coffeemaker, which made it easy to make our own breakfast, since there is none provided here.
There is no air conditioning, but we had a balcony and patio door, which locked in several open positions, so we always felt safe, even when the door was open a bit.
The hotel was very quiet, and no smoking is allowed in the building, but we did have to close the patio door at one point as a neighbour was smoking on the balcony beside us.
There is no pool in the building, but guests have use of the pool next door. The pool area is top notch; beautiful, clean and well maintained. There is a change room area with free lockers (you put in your own combination to lock/unlock) and towels are provided. There is a eucalyptus sauna there as well.
We originally booked for one night, and decided to stay for two. We had no problem doing so, but our only annoyance came when we had to pay...the girl at the desk didn't bother telling us that the price for the second night would be significantly higher than the first until we booked it. We would have paid the higher price to stay anyways, but it left a poor impression that she wasn't completely honest with us up front.
Other than that, it was a great stay.
