I liked las Letras, especially after I moved out of the first room I had, that smelled like someone had thrown up in the bed, with windows that didn't open, but nevertheless didn't block the noise of trash pickup at least twice in the middle of the night. (Seriously? Is it necessary to pick up trash Sunday night, at like two a.m., and then again around 430 or 5? Seems excessive, and excessively noisy.) This room was on the first floor, facing the small street at the back of the building. To the hotel's credit, as soon as I asked, they moved me to another room, on a higher floor, with windows that opened. It faced the same street, but I wasn't bothered by the noise, even with the windows open. Both rooms were about the same size, though with a slightly different layout. I like the second one, on the 4th or 5th floor, with its dramatic dark maroon walls, much better than the first, with its boring light blue. The bathroom(s) had a great shower, and full bath tub. The bed didn't make me want to live there for the rest of my life, but it was fine and comfortable. I'd definitely recommend a trip up to the bar on the roof for an afternoon drink while enjoying the great view, but take a pass on the ground floor restaurant. Not only was the food underwhelming, the service was fairly incomprehensible -- I think 5 different people served my table. Maybe confusion among this sizable team is why I nearly grew old enough to get my AARP card while waiting for someone to bring my bill... even after asking two different people... twice. Skip it.
