An excellent value in a central location wit easy transportation (weather bus or taxi) to all parts of the city. Front desk, especially Adriana, was extremely helpful answering my numerous questions with regard to travel, currency exchange etc.
I requested a high floor with a view when I made my reservation and it was provided. May not be for everyone if overly sensitive to nighttime street activity.
A good breakfast and a comfortable bar with friendly bartenders. Some tables overlook the constant flow of activity along Central Avenue if you enjoy watching people.
I will definitely stay here again.
