“Bogus reservation ... do not trust!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

I did a room reservation over the phone with the receptionist. Waited on the phone for confirmation of reservation and reserved, according to receptionist Romana Domingues, the last room available. Day after receive a call from a man saying he is the manager, saying that there was a mistake and they are fully booked and I donºt have a room. I recount my conversation with the receptionist and how long I waited for her to check availability and she absolutelly confirmed. He apologizes and makes up some silly excuses but has no solution for the fact that I donºt have a place to sleep anymore!!!
I hang up the phone with the feeling that something better came along and I got ditched!!!

Reviewed March 31, 2013

And we've been on the road for 10 months. Right over a gelado shop, it looked promising, sounded good by our research. It was nicely located in the heart of the city, perfect for Holy Week procession watching, but so not worth it. The place has 4 rooms in total, up steep stairs on flors 2 and 3. The rooms are tiny, no door on the ensuite toilet, tiny and kind of gross -- there was no cleaning done, no towels replaced, no trash emptied during the three days we were there. And very, very noisy, from staff and from the ice cream shop clientele, until 2AM on the Th,Fri,Sat we were there. In their defense, the ice cream shop is great, and clearly their first priority -- hotel customers are at best a distant afterthought. While we were there the stairwell ceiling fell in from rain, which wasn't easy for any of us, including staff. And internet was abysmal, not possible in our rooms, so one had to share the ice cream shop seating for internet use, and the internet was intermittent. The only staff there is ice cream shop staff, and most spoke no English; Romana (a friendly, competent staff member) was the best thing about the place but we crossed with her only a couple of hours during our three day stay.

Room Tip: I don't believe there's a good room in the place.
