We chose this hotel based on a Rick Steves review. At first glance, the place is just nice-ish. Sort of like a grown-up person's hostel. But after a few days, the friendly staff and neighborhood grew on us. The location is very quiet, and our room looked out into a lovely courtyard, with lots of parrots and other birds singing in the mornings. The hotel is clean, modestly appointed, and the beds are super comfortable. The vent shaft behind our room was problematic, if we opened the window on that side of the room, we were quickly reminded that sewage odors are common in the city of diamonds. We just left that window shut and the problem was corrected. The wifi worked pretty well, a feature we had struggled with in other hotels on our vacation. Also, our room had enough room to relax in, and had a dorm sized refrigerator, very nice. Overall, we'd say, a great value in a great location.
