I booked this hotel about 5 months prior to staying there and got a fantastic deal on the room for 5 nights. then the bad reviews started coming in and i lost count of the numerous times i went to cancel here and book somewhere else, but with the rates i received and the proximity to public transport the hotel kept winning out (that and i found that all hotels in this area seem to have the same complaints).
When we arrived we were greeted by staff who spoke fantastic English. She ended up going above and beyond her job in helping me find a restaurant that served a particular dish. Fantastic service!!!
It is right near the San antoni markets which is a great place to grab breakfast if you dont wish to get it in the hotel. We actually never got around to eating at the hotel and i see it gets great reviews on here. (We thought it would be super expensive but its actually really well priced!!) I can understand that the rooms with a balcony may get a little noisy since they face the street so ask for a quiet room out the back and you will sleep pretty well. Though you do hear people closing the doors of neighboring rooms or if someone walks in high heels across the wooden floor it is quite loud but we managed to sleep through most of it. And never found it too difficult to fall back asleep.
We felt the bed was very comfortable the air con was great and shower was massive and piping hot! Free wifi was GREAT too!!
