Hotel El Convento is unique in it's own way. The history of it definitely intrigued me.
The area in which is located is great. Walking distance to everything; no need for a taxi. Restaurants that they had to offer were good and it's atmosphere is nice.
My room was nice, had a great view but there was an issue with cleanliness. Seems as though the staff only cleaned the surface. If it considers itself to be a luxury hotel, staff should definitely be more thorough.
I had an issue with an iron which stained my $300 dress shirt and they did nothing but bring me another broken iron. Wasn't pleased at all.
If you seek a nice pool that you can swim in, look elsewhere. Pool is really small and jacuzzi needs some work but the view was nice.
