You can't help but fall in love with Hotel Boutique 1850--at least until you get to your rooms. The location on the central square with its energy and vitality is infectious. And the staff--especially the concierge Betty--is among the friendliest, cheeriest and most helpful we've ever encountered.
Then you get to the rooms. Since a friend was also staying at the hotel, we got to see two different ones. Ours was an inside room--in that it's window overlooked the first floor atrium, not outside. It was dark and gloomy--but the good news, it turned out, was that the room didn't overlook the street which our friend's did. While bright and cheery, it was also very very very noisy with all the square's hubbub, especially on Saturday night. Even ear plugs didn't help her.
Our inside room was also poorly designed for anything but sleeping. While the whole design very trendy looking, the lighting was not good, especially in the bathroom. And there was really no place to sit, except on the bed, to do any kind of computer work. We don't do a lot while we're traveling, but enough that it was pretty uncomfortable after 10 minutes.
So stay there for the warm, friendly staff...But beware of room selection and read the room description carefully before you book.
One more thing: the hotel had a lovely rooftop terrace for drinks and first one was complimentary for hotel guests. Unfortunately, it was the only place in all of Mexico we went where the music was too loud and jarring so we couldn't really enjoy the roof and were eager to leave as fast as we could.
