A very interesting hotel due to the location and history, the rooms are basic but clean and the staff is friendly. The grounds are pretty and well-maintained. The location is very convenient to walking to local landmarks and restaurants and the area is safe and comfortable.
The minor drawbacks include the lack of warm water (which shouldn't be a huge surprise traveling in Central America) which one morning turned into a complete lack of water (mid-shower) though the staff were quick to resolve the problem. Also, there is a lack of air circulation as the window openings do not have screens. Luckily it was cool at night during our stay.
The major drawback is the bell in the clock tower. It rings all night long. On the hour, quarter and half. Sometimes 11 or 17 times with no apparent pattern other than to keep you awake.
