I stayed at La Amistad back in December 2011 and March 2012, and am getting ready to stay again February 2013.
The Owner and Staff are excellent - Matt, Rudy, Carlos, Jorge, and staff are all extremely helpful and willing to assist whenever needed. Don and Mike are also awesome as part owners of the newly renovated restaurant!
I arrived at 6am (red-eye flight) before my room was ready and they allowed me to stay in another room until check later that morning/afternoon.
There is a train that operates during the week that could affect light sleepers, but ear plugs do the trick. The water pressure is awesome. La Amistad has the most comfortable beds too! Free calls to the US, and laundry add to the amenities.
