The hotel has a good location in a quiet sidestreet, just a block away from the La Merced cathedral. Close to some nice restaurants and breakfast places. The rooftop terrace has great views over La Merced. The owners are very friendly, interested and forthcoming.
There are lots of seating areas with chairs and sofas that look out over the central patio, which adds light to all levels. Free drinking water (agua pura) is provided in the hotel lobby.
The light rooms sport good beds, albeit a bit high, lots of room and plenty of closets and tables to put your stuff. Clean towels and bed linens are provided, and the room is cleaned daily. There's ensuite bathrooms with great (hot!) showers. Though there is not much room near or on the bathroom sink to put your own toiletries.
We prefer this hotel over the cramped, dark rooms next door in Casa Cristina, where your reservation might be a gamble.
