This hotel may not be the "five star" experience those who hang out at the Four Seasons hotels are accustomed too,but for those who seek an unpretentious, very reasonable cost and friendly stay, this is where you belong. My room was spacious, with a good sized living room area (where I was able to set up my computer and MagicJack and work from), a large bathroom and even a walk in closet. I had a small fridge in my room and access to a fully equipped kitchen, just steps away (shared with the other room on my floor). The rooftop terrace offers a great view of the charming city of Chapala and the lake - and a good place at which to read. The hotel is centrally located and very safe (it's located right across from the region's police headquarters). It's quiet, clean and the owners are kind and attentive. The only negative is there is no TV, but in this era of Netflix and TV and movies accessible by computer, that should not be a negative for anyone in this high tech generation.
