The hotel was inexpensive. The person at the reception when we arrived was amazing -- friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. He marked the map with all the sights we needed to see. Clearly, the location of this hotel is ideal. However, the room was small, I guess therfore its price. A sour smell of a wet shower curtain (or of towels that never dry, although they were dry) in the bathroom gagged me. Sitting on the toilet, and we are small people, you had to turn sideways or your face would be in the sink. There was no safe in the room. Poor lighting made it difficult to read, study maps, or write. Shades, however, let in light from the street at night, making it difficult to sleep. Few amenities -- just a small disposable paper packet for each of us of shampoo/body wash. Good thing we brought our own. WIFI worked better than in other hotels we've stayed in. The breakfast was an abundant European buffet spread-- fresh fruit (apples, pears, oranges, melon, kiwi), most of which needed to be peeled. You have to do that with a butter knife, unless you packed your own. Also there was cereal, yogurt, juices, cold cuts, cheese, breads, sweet rolls/pastry/cake. Husband was happy with the coffee. I asked for espresso on our first morning, and on the subsequent mornings of our stay, Pedro, who was working the breakfast area, brought it to me automatically without me asking for it. The breakfast room had nice paintings on the walls and played nice music. All in all, the hotel is a bit worn, but adequate. Its redeeming quality is its central location and price.
