This was definitely a little bit of serenity on a very busy/loud street. Centrally located, clean and beautiful, the hotel has a flowering courtyard and tastefully simple rooms. Unfortunately it is not equipped to deal with the cold in January which was about 40F at night!! We didn't realize how cold it could get at night and the room did not help matters. Even with two extra blankets (they were quite thin) per bed, we were still freezing. The show had an electric heater/shower head which they had to show us how to use. The lower the flow, the hotter the water. To get truly hot shower water, the head produced a trickle which wasn't nearly enough to keep you warm in the very cold air temps. It was a very very unpleasant experience. Washing your hands in the sink, you only had a choice of cold water. From what we were able to gather, this experience is typical of the hotels in the area. Other than the very thin walls, I would imagine this hotel nearly perfect when it's warmer out but beware if you are traveling in the winter/dry season.
