The Castillo Rojo is more than just a comfortable bed and a well appointed bathroom. Staying in a historic building brings so much charm and ambiance to the experience - enjoy the unique architecture, beautiful courtyard, and luxurious lounge with happy hour. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast every day is a substantial spread of breads, fruits, yogurt, granola, juices, and coffee and eggs made to order. The neighborhood is very walkable, with many restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby. Not to mention a huge variety of murals to take in. Very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend to other travelers.

We passed by the hotel before we had booked it, and we’re blown away by the beautiful building. When our Airbnb didn’t work out, we were looking for another place to stay and found they were rooms available. The hotel is just as beautiful inside as it was outside! It is so well decorated, everything about is a perfect combination between updated and classic. The rooms were extremely clean and the location is fantastic and safe. There are many great patios and restaurants around. |We look forward to staying there again. Daniel at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly, we look forward to meeting him again someday as well.
