“Cheap - but it shows.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Great value if you´re on a super tight budget. Rooms are very threadbare with creaky wooden floorboards you can practically see through and the bed and sparse furniture is just the same. Our room had the grotty little stained curtian that did little. Coffee and cooking facilities are there, and there is a siting room. But for a few pounds more for the night there are half a dozen better hostels on the same street. We moved after the second night.

Room Tip: Fidel Castro once stayed here in the early 50´s.

After searching around all the hostels with their expensive dorm beds, we were very happy to stumble across Aragon. It's a period style building with spacious rooms,, in room wifi, a big kitchen (free coffee in the morning), tv lounge and big bathrooms. It cost 40k for a double room (shared bathroom) which for a couple sharing is cheaper than taking dorm beds. We bargained an even better price for staying 3 nights.

I found this hotel when all the hostels around were full and it was much better option. Rooms are bigger and nicer in old stile with dark old furniture almost in art deco stile. Batrooms on the corridor are big and bright. Hotel is clean and has a lot of charm. It costs almoust the same as hostels. Staff is ok.
