Hotel is okay (rooms reasonably clean) and good location, however, the first morning there our electricity went off and they took a long time to fix it. Reception is overrun with too few staff so expect to wait to check in. No towels in the room the second day and again took ages to get someone to bring them.
All of these things are not major, however, the website lists the price as $56 US per night plus 21% taxes which should equal roughly $67 US. When you go to pay the bill if you use a card they will not let you pay in dollars and instead use their own poor exchange so the room actually costs in excess of $70 US which adds up over a few nights.
Not bad, but in my opinion, not worth the effort.
