I have stayed at Hotel El Greco 3 times over the past few years. I like it because the people are friendly, the cost is reasonable (680 pesos in June 2013), and I feel like my belongings and I are very safe there. The hotel has one slow elevator and a nearly-spiral staircase. The elevator is worth waiting for because the steps can be treacherous with your luggage. A bellboy is available and will cheerfully offer to take your bags up on his cart. The front desk staff are very friendly, speak English well, and there has never been a problem with communication or billing in the three times I have stayed there. The rooms are functional, but nothing exceptional. There is bottled water in the room, soap, shampoo, a good shower with hot water. The beds are not particularly comfortable, but are not soft and saggy. A television remote is available for a 200 peso deposit, which you get back when you return it, otherwise no TV. An internet router is on each floor with pretty good speed and at no charge. Just ask for the password at the desk ("clave" in Spanish if you ask the bellboy). There is a business center next to the lobby, although I didn't use it. There is an internet cafe around the corner to the right and across the street.
This hotel is on a main road close to an intersection where you can catch busses. Out the door to the right and around the corner are sidewalk kiosks where you can get sodas and snacks for good prices. Katty-corner across the intersection is a department store with a Sanborn's restaurant in the back. They have very good food and good service.
