Stayed at the Don Paula between Christmas and New Years recently and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. In all my many years of travel I cannot recall a hotel that had better value - whether budget or luxury.
Rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable, and adequately appointed. There was plenty of closet room, a mini refer with complementary water and juice and french doors to a juliette balcony. Beds (twin) and pillows were comfortable and spacious.
The hotel is family run - the son speaks excellent English whereas mom and pop are very helpful but speak only Spanish. Upon arrival, Manuel (the son) gave us a map, highlighting all places of interest. Upon departure, mom called us a taxi that came within three minutes.
The location is excellent - being within a few blocks of the Mezquita one way and many restaurants and a large plaza the other. It was located in a small placita that was very quiet.
The hotel had been recently re-done with high quality doors, closets, trim, etc several steps above what one would expect from a budget hotel.
Complimentary WiFi was available everywhere in the hotel and fast.
The rate my friend and I had was very low (55 E) making this a fantastic deal. Rates listed within the room were more in the 80-100 E range depending upon time of year. At any of these, this hotel would be highly recommended.
