The price is definitely right, and the location is fine in the sense that the things you would want to see/do in Xela are readily accessible. There was a fair amount of street noise, however. The public areas of the hotel -- the lobby and restaurant -- are attractive, the rooms not so much. The rooms are clean and large enough, but don't have much other than that to recommend them. The parking is very secure. The proprietess is a lovely person who speaks excellent English. Perhaps reflecting my mixed feelings about the place, I was pleased and relieved - I won't go so far as to say surprised - to find in the morning ample hot water for my shower. I would stay here again, but not if I were traveling with my wife, who is more picky. I initially didn't check yes or no in response to "Would you recommend this hotel to a friend," but Trip Advisor requires a response, so I clicked "yes" -- but that would be with full disclosure including the negatives I've noted.
