This is a boutique hotel in the suburbs of PE and a short 10 minute drive to the airport. It’s a good choice if you have an early morning flight out as we did. They don’t have a restaurant but there’s a small shopping center two blocks away with a few restaurants and a gas station.
This hotel has zero curb appeal (the picture on their website is very misleading) and we were a little concerned but once we stepped through the front door it was wonderful. There is an inner courtyard with lovely landscaping and a pool and they have a garage so you don’t need to leave your car on the street.
We had to leave for the airport before breakfast time and when the staff realized this they offered to bring us tea and toast at 6am.
