This hotel is adorable, located on a great street and decorated well inside. However, the rooms are small and can be noisy (hotel is on a somewhat busy street with Chiva party buses coming by and lots of honking)- which seems strange given the otherwise upscale nature of the hotel. The service was great and attentive. There is a doorman and a security guard with a dog in front of the hotel at all times. There is a small front patio/balcony to drink coffee or eat. There is not much of a view- our room looked into the neighboring apartments.
The only issue I had is that I emailed prior to my reservation to ensure that as a foreigner I would not be charged the 16% VAT. They confirmed I would not and when I checked in she made a copy of my passport "to show I had the exemption stamp for VAT." When I got my bill there was a 16% charge I still cannot decipher. The bill is confusing, so I am still not sure if I was charged this percent. However, upon check out the front desk personnel was unable to explain to me what the charge was. Although I speak moderate Spanish, I would still expect such a nice hotel to have a front desk staff that could explain the various charges to me in English, as he must get asked that question often.
Overall, the hotel felt safe and was a pleasant experience.
