We spent a week at this very centrally located hotel (close to Restauradores metro stn). We asked for a quiet room in the back as the street can be noisy at night (many restaurants, good-natured touts). Fairly old building with elevator and staircase going up to the fourth floor; old-style tiles in the hallways were a nice touch. Friendly and helpful staff at Reception that speaks English well; friendly staff of the large buffet-style breakfast room seems to speak little English. Lay-out of all floors is like a maze: upon getting to your hotel room floor, you can turn right or left - you'll always end up finding your room. Our room (108), which was at the end of a very narrow hallway (barely wider than a suitcase) giving entry to 4 hotel rooms, proved to be quiet but cramped: the floorspace at the foot-end of the bed is very narrow; there was little space to put 2 suitcases. The mattress on the bed was not that comfortable; also, small thin pillows and no duvet but old-fashioned sheets and a blanket. The bathroom was quite clean but fairly small; make sure to put your towel near the bathtub before having a shower as you make take a fall when trying to grab it from the towel rack that's been put up in the wrong place (you'll have to reach around a glass partition that more or less keeps the water from getting to the floor when in the shower); both plumbing (toilet + wash basin) as well as ventilator were very noisy; hairdryer is included. Quiet AC /heater fixed to higher end of the wall. Small TV attached high up to the wall in a corner; very small table, 1 basic wooden chair; no coffee/tea making facilities, so bring a device of your own if need be. Built-in closet with coat hangers that can't be used anywhere else but there (the lower wooden part needs to be fitted into a metal piece that's attached on a rod), so bring some of your own if you need to do some laundry. Bay window has a metal grille to prevent intruders from coming in (convenient for putting up some of that laundry provided it's not raining, but may also be a fire hazard). Fortunately, some large potted plants just outside our bay window gave us something nice to look at from the inside. All in all: quite basic and clean, and fine for just a week. Some pictures on the internet show romantic-looking rooms; room 108 lacked romance but fortunately was quiet.
