I booked here for three nights despite the many negative reviews and I am very glad that I did. First of all, the location is amazing. It is right around the corner from the Mercado Central and within short walking distance of all the main attractions of the old town. The free parking in their enclosed garage is, in itself, worth the price of the room. My room is actually quite large. Although the furnishings are spartan, it has everything I need. The bed is very comfortable and the mattress is firm and thick, and I think it is made of foam. The bedding is crisp and clean and certainly not threadbare. The room is an interior one with a shaft view. By night it was completely quiet, and by day noise from the street was minimal. There is an attached nightstand on each side of the bed, a plastic lawn type chair, a good sized plastic table about three feet square. This was great for laying out my toiletries and other daily essentials. There is no TV, but most of the time I never even watch TV. I am too busy editing the day's photos, uploading them to Facebook, etc. There is also a heating/AC unit mounted on the wall but no control with which to operate it. In any case, neither heat nor AC were necessary. There is a built in wall unit that provides extra shelving for things and space for hanging clothes. The room is very brightly lit by two recessed fixtures in the ceiling. The bathroom is quite narrow physically, but it is also as long as the entire room. It is kind of divided into three sections. The sink and mirror as you enter, a fully enclosed square shower with tightly closing vinyl doors in the middle, and the toilet/bidet at the far end. Although the hand held shower's wall bracket is cracked and looks about ready to split completely, it did hold. Hot water is plentiful and water pressure is good. I was very happy with the shower. The room and bath were in no way unclean or unhygenic, nor were there bugs of any kind any where. I have said this before, and I will say it again. Unless the people writing the scathing negative reviews were given rooms substantially different from mine, these reviews are completely unjust and they should be totally and completely ignored. Room cost for all this was 17€. An amazing bargain.
