European-style? Yes. Upscale? Trying to be. Comfortable beds? Yes. Austere? Yes. Food? Excellent. Great location? Sure. I wanted to try Descanseria on this visit instead of my usual stay at Casareyna. Afterall, the hotel is owned by my absolutely favorite El Mural de Los Poblanos Restaurant where my favorite Chef Lisette works her magic. Indeed, the chef here at Descanseria, David Diaz puts out a very good "urban cafe" menu with quality food. I love the decor of the dining room -- restful with lots of textures on ancient colonials walls, cream, beige, grey, banquettes. What's lacking? Towel bars and shelves in the bathroom. A counter top to set your toothbrush and make-up/shaving kit. An air conditioner that works--lots of AC noise. A room orientation that shows you where the light switches are and how to lower the black-out shade. Clean? Yes. Attentive service at the front desk? Yes. Nevertheless, the rooms lack warmth -- no artwork, no rugs on the floor. Sorry to write this. I likely won't return. Better value for the money elsewhere, breakfast included not withstanding!
