The location of this hotel is very good, and on a few occasions, I had very good help from the staff, including the ability to remain in my room until 7PM on the checkout day. But that is the best I can say. The rooms varied from spacious to cramped and some did not even offer any windows.
The beds were terrible, as others have stated, very old and not supportive at all. The rooms on the street side were subject to all sorts of street noise - garbage trucks emptying the dumpsters which were located across from the front door (about 30 feet), and worse, some person who enjoyed revving his motorcycle engine at around 5 or 6AM.
The breakfast is perfect for those with a sweet tooth - while fruit was available, the majority of items were pastries, cakes, etc. with yogurt the main protein offering.
The other item that folks need to be aware of is that there seems to be no truly "safe" area in BA - we spent a good number of days traveling the city and it is filled with graffiti (everywhere) and just a block from the hotel one of our party was mugged - in full light and with ample witnesses. This is not a fault of the hotel, but we did not feel safe in this neighborhood.
