It is mystifying how people seem to have such different experiences at this hotel. I can understand the complaint of not having an en suite bathroom and would hope that the hotel are addressing this. Unless the rooms are different sizes though, I really don't get the issues that some people seem to have had.
I stayed at the Hotel Loreto for 4 nights at the end of a six week tour through South America and found it to be one of the best of my travels. Some others that had purported to be three stars were little more than hostels by comparison.
Yes, the neighbourhood is a little rough but this edginess exists in lots of areas of the city and adds to the character of the place.
I found the decor to be simple and effective, the staff were excellent and whilst not the best, the breakfast was perfectly adequate.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone that knows what to expect from its star rating.
