I only got to stay at the Gran Sula because of missionary friends of mine, who get an incredibly good price for rooms there. So, considering what I paid, this would have to be a 5 star review. I do, however not think that this is helpful for anybody else, so here goes my review imagining I had paid the full price:
The location is simply unbeatable, directly at the Plaza Central with great view on the cathedral and onto the hills surrounding the city (including the famous Coca Cola Hill).
Service is exactly what you expect of a hotel of this sort, friendly but very strict.
The rooms have an okay size, our room had a balcony as well as coffee making facilities and a small fridge. The biggest minus about the rooms is the very weak shower and the almost unstoppable, very old air con.
The courtyard with swimming pool is a nice are to sit around, but very windy, and as soon as it gets dark a home to bats.
I decided to indulge myself and get room service breakfast, it is definitely worth the L.25 to get it served, and the grapefruit juice is lovely!
I would NEVER pay the full price to stay there, but if I ever get the special price again, I wouldn't hesitate to take it.More
