My wife and I just checked out of this dump, yesterday. We were taken in by others accounts of the romontic notions of past grandour. We didn´t find it so. This once fine mansion is in sad disrepair with peeling paint, a non-functioning elevator and nightly power-outages leaving you sweating in 35 C humid BA. The non-English speaking staff explained away in spanish, when we ansked them what to do when the lights and electricity went out. A small sign in spanish caught us off-guard last day. It says, Cash-only, no credit Cards. We had US dollars and they short-changed us to a rediculous low rate. With the elevator out no one in the reception got off their behinds to assist us with the luggage for the stairs; they just sat there; allways un-smiling. The room we got was their most expensive, but it was just a tired old box. At our departure we had asked them to arrage for transportation to the airport. We expected some autorized van or professional. Instead a private driver pulled up and in his own private car drove us to the airport after some dispute with the hotel owner over what rate to charge us. This is a bummer.
