Potentially this could be a fantastic hotel. It is on the Plaza de Armas (main square) so you just walk out the door and you have everything you need and fantastic sights! This is about all it has going for it though. It needs a lot of work.
The showers are terrible. They dribble and are either freezing or boiling hot. Once it just stopped working in the middle of the shower and we had to get the guy at reception to come and fix it. The internet only sometimes works and more often it doesn't work. The beds are a mix, my bed was awful. It was basically just two mattresses and I felt like I would be thrown off if I moved but Mum's bed seemed fine. The lamp in the room is all broken and there is only one socket for you to plug things into, no safe in the room and no where to hide things and breakfast was appalling just a couple of slices of toast and some coffee. Another thing is the towels are old, grubby, grey and they never left us any. Every night we had to go downstairs and ask for two towels.
We have stayed in two rooms, the second was better than the first. The first room smelt so bad and we couldn't work out what it was until we found two head sized holes in the bathroom wall. One lead into what was the kitchen of the restaurant next door and the other to the restaurant stairs so very noisy and freezing cold! They have heaters in the room which seems the only source of heating in the place and as there aren't enough sockets you have to choose whether you want heat, light or to charge your things.
For $25 a night I don't think you can find worse!
