The upside is that it is only a couple of hundred meters from Parque Central, Calle La Calzada, restaurants, bars, banks, street money changers, etc. Breakfast was to be had for a good price of only 2 USD.
I think some of others got nicer rooms and had a much better experience. Mine was really hot with a noisy fan (either sleep with the noise or with the heat), and a small window above head height which gave some natural lighting, but also provided plenty of noise at 5:30 AM as the garbage truck came through, and the school children across the street an hour later.
The water situation in the mornings (not the fault of the management unless they want to invest in a second small overhead water tank) was a bit irritating, leaving only one shower for many occupants without private baths.
Unlike many of the other places I have stayed till then, the hotel charged for it, albeit a small 12 cordobas (a mere 0.38 USD, and avoid the need to walk to the supermarket and more plastic waste.)
I got what I paid for. It wasn’t a bargain, but I don’t think they were in the least unfair in any way. I give the overall experience an average 3 stars.More
