My wife and I stayed here for six days. Staff were all exceptionally nice and helpful. During the day, there were staff that spoke English, but the two young men who worked at night were not
fluent in English but did know enough that between their English and my limited Spanish we got on just fine. Our room was pleasant, beds were comfortable, and we had a nice balcony that would have been great if it had not been rainy. The continental breakfast, which is included in the room price, consists of a roll or croissant and some toast, juice, and coffee, but you can get additional items like eggs for a modest additional cost. The type of juice varies and it is not made with tap water, so it is safe to drink. You can buy bottled water from the hotel, but the best bet for getting bottled water is to walk to the Supermaxi supermarket which is about 1/2 mile walk. The hotel is on the edge of the Mariscal district, which has numerous bars and restaurants. On Thursday and Friday, and a bit on Saturday, we could hear the noise from the bar goers, police sirens, car noises, etc. There was no problem on other nights. There are many good restaurants nearby and we felt fine one night walking down the Avenue 6 de Diciembre to to the Ballet Folklorico, which is only ten minutes away and not to be missed. We walked everywhere including Old Town, but it is a pretty good hike to get there. We felt quite safe walking around the Mariscal in the evening and neither had nor saw any problems, but we did not stay out late. I would definitely go back to the Antinea.
