I was traveling by myself and stayed at this hotel on March 2014
The minus and it is a very big minus: I cannot give this hotel a good review because of the constant noise at night. There are bands playing in the plaza until midnight and there is a bar across the street on "Republica" that plays electronic music until 2:00 am in the morning. If you cannot sleep at night everything else goes out of the window.
The hotel manager was rude. I was trying to make a local call. (I speak Spanish fluently). There was a phone in the room but no phone service. I asked the manager how to make a call. He told me to go up front (just like that, no more details). So I went up front to the restaurant and they told me there was no phone service out of the hotel. I came back to the manager and then he told me to go across the street to the "Santa Maria" hotel. Which turned out to be a lie, because they also told me there was no phone service out of the hotel. All the interaction with the hotel manager was without him looking at my face. I ended up buying a phone card and making calls from the public phones.
The staff of the restaurant were clueless how to provide good service. (This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel)
Hotel decoration: It is very nicely decorated in a colonial style.
Rooms: My room had two big beds with plenty of room. There is a very nice tile floor. There was hot water but when you were showering the hot water would go away and then would come right back. The AC was ok. (no complaints). Although the weather was nice so I cannot tell when the weather is real hot how it will function.
