We understand the front of the hotel is original from about 1528 where Spanish Conquistador Diego de Mazariegos lived. This hotel is as rich in history as the city itself. It is conveniently located across the plaza and walking distance to shops, restaurants, churches, markets -- AMAZING! The hotel staff is friendly, breakfast is very nice (included with room), secured parking is about 2 blocks away (while this is a bit of an inconvenience, it's how most hotels operate) the room is small, but clean. Tip: if you're leaving early in the morning, you'll have to ask for the hot water to be turned on. In January the days can be warm to hot and the evenings and early mornings very chilly. The room does not have central heat, but lots of heavy blankets keep you warm. We just loved the feel of the entire building -- truly like stepping back in time. A little expensive for what you get (we paid $600 pesos for 2 persons -- this may also depend what time of year you stay) but we feel we paid for the "experience" and not the "room". A very memorable stay!!!
