I tried to imagine the conversation between the hotel developers and their bank. "We want to open a Mexican-themed hotel, in an edgy part of south London halfway between Brixton and Peckham and nowhere near a tube station"
"Certainly sir, here's all the money you need."
This is not an obvious location and not an obvious approach to hotel development. But it works brilliantly.
Other reviewers have described it as quirky. It definitely is, and it wouldn't suit everyone. Mention has also been made of the quality of the toiletries (fab!) and the fact that the stairs would make it impossible for elderly or disabled people.
The reason I have given it a 4 rating rather than 5 is that it is also quite noisy - its on a main road, and the floors do not have carpets. If you're a light sleeper, don't expect too much sleep. Which is a pity as the beds are a joy.
But it's a wonderful place, (probably best suited to young people!) with excellent service and with a tremendous restaurant attached providing great breakfasts and some of the best tapas I've ever had.
