We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in August. It's a clean basic hotel. The rooms are a nice size but not spacious. Our room was cleaned properly everyday. The rooms has small windows and balconies but I must admit the views were off the street which was not that great. The balcony was dirty with someone's dirty mug that had clearly been left there for weeks.
The staff at the hotel were there to deliver a service and answer questions but not to be friendly in particular one of the women at reception who I think was called Maria was quite rude and abrupt. We went to reception for help three times and all three times we felt we disturbed her from paperwork. The first time we were ignored until someone else came and served us, the second time she eventually spoke to us to give us directions and we felt like a nuisance and the third time to check out where she took the key card and didn't even bother to say bye. Aside from this oruro stay was fine. The hotel is quite a distance to the beach approx 20 min walk. To other arp ocular tourist areas such as las ramblas it's about 15-20 mins too. the nearest metro link is 5 mins.
One disappointment was the lack of tea and coffee facilities in our rooms. although the guy at the bar was lovely it was very expensive to get a coffee.
Apart from a few minor things This was a pleasant stay.
