We spent 5 nights at the Institute and were generally pleased with our accomodations.
Just a few steps to the Metro was a big plus for us. The Metro is very easy to navigate and will get you close to anywhere in the city. You can get a free app online at the apple store. Great neighborhood with many restaurants and a park across the street.
Our room on the 8th floor was spacious enough for our needs and had a nice balcony. We had our coffee there every morning. Facilities are well maintained and housekeeping is top notch. The breakfast had a lot of variety and was well prepared. I could eat there every day without getting bored with it.
The only down-side is the cold institutional feel of the lobby. OK, I get it, it's called the institute. There is no sitting area for the guests or coffee available in the lobby. The front desk clerks were competent but lacked the warmth you normally find in tourist hotels. Just "here's your key, breakfast is at 7" sort of thing. I'm not sure why they had a concierge desk as it was usually vacant and when the concierge was present was no help anyway.
Bottom line, the room and location were great and I would stay here again.
