We stayed here with our two kids, 18 and 20. The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the city center, or a 5-minute cab ride. The staff spoke excellent English and was very helpful. The grounds are pleasant, with places to sit and relax. They have a locked room where you can check heavy luggage while you go on excursions (they are linked with www.giardinotours.com, which has an office on the premises). Our rooms were clean and adequate, although by no means luxurious. Just be sure to request a room away from the roosters! One corner of the hotel abuts a neighborhood where the locals raise chickens. The roosters woke us up at 4:00 a.m. with non-stop screeching that continued through dawn. Upon request, they switched us to a room that was further away and tolerable.
