We selected this 'boutique' cutie in the Old City based on a Trip Advisor rave. After we made reservations (easy) we read some not so great reviews so here's our opinion: We learned that the staff is Spanish speaking before we left home, but were told that one did speak 'pretty good' English. She was available only one hour of our 2 day stay and that made our experience a little difficult. Fortunately we had a translator App on our iPad and the hotel does have good Wi-Fi so we got by. The staff could not have tried harder to please us and they delightfully did. The house is a beauty and the common areas are comfortable and welcoming --especially the roof garden and the first floor patio. Our room (yellow one) was quite small and the platform bed (2 twins pushed together w/2 HARD mattresses) was not very comfortable, but after a day of touring the city, which is great for walking, we were tired enuf to hardly notice. Great bathroom and shower. The location is ideal with two charming plazas within an easy walk, very good reasonable restaurants and lots of fun street action. Complimentary breakfast was good and we had cold bottled water when ever we asked. The house is very clean and the lounge is a good spot to read your guide book. We are not young people, but were happy to see most of the other guests were, and they enjoyed the house as well.
