Based on the Lonely Planet, we tried to book a night at Hotel Santa Cruz, which has been closed since the earthquake. We were referred to Tierra & Vino, which is a nearby house posing as a hotel. All of the rooms are off of one hallway, the doors are hollow, the beds are tiny. There's no place to put your luggage. The window opens to a view of the next house. The shower water starting running cold during my 3 minute shower.
Breakfast was some processed ham and cheese, white bread, orange sugar water, and highly processed yogurt. I had hot water and a teabag instead. On the other hand, free WiFi, free parking in front of the house, the neighborhood is quiet, the staff is friendly and tries to be helpful, even if the restaurant they suggested was closed.
