The previous reviews really said it all. Its perfect! The hotel is admittedly a little hard to find at first. We didn't have a map but after walking around for a bit, asking some locals and cafe staff we eventually found it. There is a small circular suspended sign out on the street about the size of a dinner plate which we had walked past initially without noticing.
We where struck with the 'WOW' factor when walking into a modern spacious foyer and was greeted with a friendly face and a cheery "Buenos Dias"..The staff are amazing and very curtious. All through our 2 night stay they where always fantastic with directions and advice. That includes the day and night staff. My wife and speak Spanish but there a couple of staff members with flawless English so don't despair if you can't speak the lingo.
Room was awesome and we loved the loft containing the bedroom. There is a TV with cable mounted to the wall (not that we used it) and a wood stove down stairs. What really made the place was the floor to ceiling windows. So great waking up with views of the city. The balcony was amazing to be out on at night for all the lights etc.
Maybe the only thing, and its a small thing but the down stairs area in the room is a little plain. Maybe a coloured rug or a painting would be nice but thats just a personal thing and doesn't subtract from the wonderful experience we had.
Breakfast is a simple but perfect combination of Coffee, fresh juice, toast and jam, cereal and yoghurt and fruit salad which you can have in your room or in the common area. I really can't fault this hotel.
If we are ever in town again we will be back.. No question!
