Hotel Modelo is a simply gorgeous, elegant hotel (at a very reasonable price) - the artwork and furniture, the accommodations - spectacular. Breakfast is included in the price. The owners are something like 3rd generation and take great pride in their hotel. The sense of family while there is evident, though it's easy to keep a low profile and relax on their many common-area sofas and chairs scattered throughout.
Mention has been made of the "noise" which we found to be evident only on a Saturday when things everywhere seem to be hopping. Until about midnight you could hear a base from a bar down the street and some traffic, but every other night it was quiet.
This place is so special, the owners & staff so friendly and helpful, and the location prime - this hotel is definitely recommended by us. Without a doubt, I'd stay here again.
