“It was everything that I expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2008

I came with a group of friends. There were five of us and we only were able to stay one night. I look forward to returning as soon as possible.
The drawbacks were few. Though the hotel is close to the nearest parking lot on a map it is entirely up hill; probably three blocks up a steep incline and then at least a block up a stair case. I would recomend taking a taxi to St. Dominics and walking the block down hill.

We arrived just before a neighborhood feast and there was a lot of noise until midnight on the stree below our windows.

It is not that close to the center of the city.

It sounds like I am complaining, but now that I am aware of these points I really want to go back soon. It was a great place that there may not be a better view of the city available. The room was clean and had a view to die for. The people who worked the desk were friendly and helpful. Every detail was carefully seen to.

Stay here if you get the opportunity.
Just remember that you can't stay out too late.

  • Liked — The staff and the view.
  • Disliked — Walking uphill to get there and then again to get to the center of town. I'm 56 and out of shape.

Booked 4 months ahead and requested a room with a view. Wow, what a view (make sure to get one of the top 2 floors facing the main cathedral)! Very nice clean room with a balcony and a nice bathroom. Great location close to the main plaza. A good 1 hour uphill hike from the train station with bags, so take a cab, or a good map so you don't get lost. Pro Soccer team plays nearby. We definitely will go back. Only drawback is you pay by cash and reserve by fax (see Rick Steve's book for their fax number). But you get a discount and a great value. Our favorite of the 4 hotels we stayed at, but we tended toward the spartan (read "cheap") B&Bs mostly.

  • Liked — View from balcony, location
