Overall not a bad place to stay. We checked it out first before we agreed to stay there. We were on our way to a retreat for 12 days so wanted to know what we were getting and for how much before we agreed to book.
Would suggest nailing them down to a specific room number. We were shown room 604 or something but when we went to check in we ended up on the 4th floor in some crappy room with three twin beds (we were a couple). I told them that was unacceptable. We were then put in another room which had no natural light and was more like a prison cell than a hotel room. Again, I told them that was not acceptable. Eventually they moved us up to the 6th floor and into a better quality room more like what we saw a couple weeks before.
The bed was nice and comfy so points for that.
Bathroom, very clean and tidy. Towels clean and fresh.
I speak Spanish and Portuguese so I was loving getting stations from Peru, Colombia, and Brazil. Porn channel is 24 just in case you care.
AC was nice and cold.
Restaurant on the 2nd floor is actually pretty good and you can just tack it onto your room. We had the fish (pescado a lo jibaro) and rather enjoyed it (doncella I think it was).
Power went out about a minute or less after we got out of the elevator. Power is unpredictable so would suggest taking the stairs.
Staff was pretty good in accommodating us. We arrived on our own steam so they offered us a lift to the airport on the way out. That was handy so they get points for courtesy.
Kinda far from Plaza de las Armas, so you'll need to either walk or do a mototaxi.
Overall, yes, I'd recommend the place, but just make sure you look at a room, if you like it, note the room number and make sure you get THAT room and not another one down in the dungeon.
