Lovely hotel behind the Monastery of Santa Catalina and 10 minute walk to Plaza de Armas. Spotlessly clean, very large and comfortable room and double bed, well-appointed modern bathroom, excellent staff, very reasonably priced. Their continental breakfast of coffee, juice, fresh fruit and bread was minimal but sufficient. If you want eggs, they charge extra for that.
We had two problems during our six day stay at this hotel. Firstly, one morning, there was no hot water but the staff jumped on this problem and in a few hours, restored the hot water.
Secondly, and more seriously, on Friday and Saturday nights the noise from the nearby bar/disco was so excessive that we suffered two sleepless nights. We were planning to change hotels. Management told us they called the police to fix the problem. Additionally the hotel's owner tried to sort things out with the bar owner. When we continued to complain, they changed our room which somewhat reduced the noise level. On other nights, we had no problems sleeping.
