We made all arrangements by internet and had to pay a deposit in advance. It is located in the San Blas district, near a variety of art shops for tourist shopping, including some high quality shops to find unique pieces.
From the street you would never guess the beauty within. The hotel actually has two courtyards. The rooms have carved wood beds and furniture. We had room 109 which had chairs just outside the door where you could sit and view the flower filled courtyard and blue sky over cobble rooftops. It was really beautiful. We watched a huge humming bird flit from flower to flower and rest in a tree. This is probably the prettiest hotel courtyard in all my travels.
There is free wireless internet in the room if you have your own laptop. I’m unsure of other internet use. There is a TV in the room which while unnecessary can be nice to hook up your camera and review some photos. We paid for an additional heater. The bathroom had only cold water in the sink but hot showers.
Breakfast included 1 egg with bread and juice/coffee/tea and was in a wonderful little room upstairs. The desk was very helpful in making all arrangements. They provided a taxi to the airport on departure as we did not require it on arrival. Highly recommend.
