I usually tend to stay at 4 or 5 Star properties but this got booked by a friend so I prepared myself for the worst. It actually turned out to be not that bad and as always on here, I try to rate based on the category the hotel is in. First off, the hotel is right in one of the safest areas of the city but so are many backpacker hostels and restaurants like Hooters (yep, seriously, I couldn't believe it either!) so if you're after a quiet neighborhood, this is not for you.
The rooms are all a bit dim unfortunately, some apparently have no windows at all while mine had only a tiny one looking into the inner courtyard. The shower area was rather small and the moldy and generally not very well kept. There was an aircon unit in the room however, and the IKEA bed provided was comfortable enough for me to sleep well. Staff didn't really speak English so a little bit of basic Spanish skills are definitely advisable but I would recommend for most of South America in general. Cleaning of the room was so so but again, I don't think you can expect too much from a hotel in this price class. For what it was, front desk staff was friendly and helpful and always had a very watchful eye over who enters the premises at night which made me feel safe in a country that is not exactly known for its safety. All in all alright for the money I would say.
