This review is just for the hotel, not the restaurant. Absolutely never coming back here again. I read about the neighbor dog that continually barks throughout the night, they are not lying. It barked every hour of the night. Worst sleep I’ve ever had - maybe 4 hrs at best and that was broken up by all the barking. The bed was also sunken in on the left side and very uncomfortable/lumpy. Second reason not to stay: ROACHES! This place is rampant with them. They crawl up from the bathroom sink and when you turn on the light they run in the holes. I have never left a 1 star review for any hotel before, but this was so bad, I have to report this. Hopefully, they read this and do something about the bugs and the leaky toilet/shower. The floor was constantly wet in the bathroom. Location is 4 stars, it’s real close to downtown, but the streets are very dusty. When a car drives by, there’s a wave of dust that flies over. Service wasn’t that great either. Thankfully, we just stayed one night as a last minute extended stay. Just spend the extra money and stay at a nicer hotel. Not worth the savings.

Positive: Everyone we encountered was genuinely friendly and very helpful. Kudos to all staff. Location location location. Close enough to all the touristy areas of el centro historico but far away enough for the hubbub to not bother us. Good restaurants close by. Negative: We only used one bed and the mattress was past it¿s prime. Air con worked well and the internet was a constant 3 out of 4 bars. The restroom was adequate. Overall clean but old. Not musty though.
