Very, very quiet, since the adobe walls are reportedly five feet thick, the Hosteria del Frayle has modest rooms clustered around courtyards and lightwells. Built as the Casa de Moneda in 1693, the bathrooms are obviously add-ons, but perfectly functional. Staff is friendly, though little English is spoken, so some basic Spanish is helpful. The attraction to this hotel stems from its location about 50 steps from the main plaza, a tree-shaded triangle with restaurants on two sides and the Teatro Juarez and a church on the other. Behind the Teatro is a funicular railway that leads to a mirador above the town. The view is breath-taking. Try going up in the late afternoon and then again in the morning for different photo opportunities. Caution: Your taxi driver will have to drop you behind the Teatro since Sopena is a pedestrian street. It's about a hundred metre walk to the hotel and there is no elevator, so you may have to haul your luggage up many stairs. The hotel has a restaurant, but there are dozens within walk distance. Virtually everything of interest is within easy walk distance. An amazing city straight out of the 17th century.
