As we approached the Hotel. the graffiti and fairly ordinary appearance of the area made us nervous as to our choice but we had no cause for alarm. The hotel was attractive and well maintained externally. Inside was an efficient reception and comfortable lobby area. The rooms are accessed by wide wooden stairs to the floors above both front and back. Long, light corridors lead to small though comfortable rooms in assorted configurations, (single, twin, double, king). The pillows were a little large and hard for me but my husband loved them and he said it was the best sleep in tree weeks trip! The 1st floor rooms have large opening doors to the internal and very attractive courtyard, 2nd floor have balconies. Each floor also has a large lounge area. A computer area, bar, gym and breakfast room. We loved sitting out in the courtyard in the evening, noise was not an issue and we were early to bed. The roof has a lovely patio with lounges and a parrilla grill, solar panels and a 360 degree rooftops view. Bathrooms are small but efficient with shampoo and liquid soap. The university is close by and there are many restaurants and bars with walking distance. Also city sights are a short walk across the bridge. We found the Management extremely helpful when we decided to take two rooms instead of one triple. The breakfast was served in a room which opens onto the courtyard, juices, breads, ham, cheese, yoghurt, Banana cake(yum), scrambled and boiled eggs. Spreads, coffee and tea. Very nice. This was a great find, just a shame we only had one night.
