This hotel does the trick. We spent a couple of nights here and the location is perfect. Right in the heart of this fascinating city. The value was there as the room was clean and compared to nearby places,a good deal. What I really liked about this hotel though, was the staff. Liliana is an absolute jewel and a wealth of knowledge and savvy tips. Amazed a top multi-national company hasn't snapped her up, with her many language skills. Breakfast is simple, but the price is negligible anyway. A good choice of hotel for those not looking for luxury, but looking for a clean, comfortable enough room for sleeps and very good staff, in the heart of it all.
