We read on trip advisor about this exclusive little guesthouse, after already having booked at a different hotel, upon ready the reviews and seeing the photos we decided to cancel our booking we had already made, and book here instead.
One of the best decisions!
I might be a little in love with this place. The décor is quirky and kitsch and funky and weird, nothing matches, but everything comes together in an unbalanced perfect harmony. It is difficult to explain, you’ll have to see it to understand and appreciate its bizarre brilliance, as the photos can only give you a glimpse of the reality.
All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and eager to help in any way possible.
I stayed in the Blue Room, with is like a loft apartment, and I simply loved every single thing in the room, from the colour of the walls to the flower vase and lights. It felt like home! Now if only I could re-do my home to look like this. Every evening each guest is given a warm water bag to warm up your bed – a very nice touch.
Located in the corner of the Plaza Nazarenas, a block above the Plaza des Armas – it is difficult to find a more central location.
Breakfast is included – but is set, it is not a buffet, which did not bother me at all, as this is a guesthouse after all, and not a hotel. You can choose at what time you would like your breakfast to be served, and if you would like to have breakfast in your room, or downstairs in the courtyard.
The first morning we had scrambled eggs, grilled tomato mushrooms, bacon, fresh spinach leaves and crostini’s, served with a lovely freshly made fruit smoothy, and coffee or tea. This was followed by more coffee of tea and 2 traditional tamales, one savoury and one sweet – a definite hunger stopper of a breakfast.
The second morning we had again a lovely fresh fruit smoothy, followed by 2 eggs sunny side up, over a bed of Asian style vegetables, which sound odd, but the combination was yummy. For breakfast dessert we were served a delightful crepe with friend banana and apples, and a light caramel sauce.
Criticism on the breakfast would be that they should ask you how you would like your eggs done, as I know of many people who cringe at the thought of runny egg yolk (my father being one of them, which them on the second morning did not touch his eggs.
Actually for this peculiar little guesthouse, that would be the only criticism I have.
Do make a booking at the Fallen Angel, or at least stop by and ask to have a look at the rooms, there is no other place like this in the world!
