I stayed here in September 2013 and really enjoyed my stay. The location is awesome, it's on a quiet street, great for walking around and an easy walk to the city wall and to the main old town areas. The girls at the front desk are extremely helpful and have alot of information and recommendations. They recommended La Mulata for food which was our favorite place and it was a great! They also helped us book some tours, e.g. Islas de Rosarios and the Chivas bus. They were very easy-going as well - they held our bags until we had to leave later that night and their checkout is 1pm (!!). The only thing that would be helpful is if the staff that is knowledgeable and informative were staffed all the time. Seemed like the girls that were the most helpful were there from 7am to 6pm, which was ok because it was easy to book the tours first thing in the morning and leave a couple of hours later. Only thing is, I left my sneakers there and because it was after 6pm no one could help me and I was leaving the city a few hours later - so goodbye sneakers.
The rooms were very large with lots of storage, we could have stayed there for a few weeks and felt comfortable. We stayed in one of the rooms with a balcony, it was nice to have a balcony - although, there was no view, except for the side of a building. The room also had a kitchonette, which we didn't use and the mini bar was so inexpensive, the snacks and beer were less at the mini bar than in the supermarket. The shower had great water pressure and they had a flat screen tv. And the breakfast was really good, expect eggs everyday :)
