  • Liked: Staff & service

Excellent location. Loved there was a kitchenette but it wasn't well equipped-no knives for example. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Necesitamos hora de chek in a las 10 pm, el hotel se negó. Y aún así hicieron el cobro en la tarjeta de crédito

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The room was good in general, I would suggest improving the beds, they were not super stable, they make a lot of sounds when you move. There was some “still water” outside the room, so it attracted mosquitoes. I had to make sure I kept the window shut at all times, otherwise those mosquitoes would have been bad. Little details to improve for that price! But in general good. Pretty clean and the service was great.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

Like- hotel is at the city center and close to shopping, restaurants and popular attractions Dislike- room fixtures are broken (i.e. lights and power outlet in the toilet is not working, the hotel did an improvised one by putting a floor lamp inside the toilet and run through an extension cord. Curtain is broken, it was taken down and leaves no privacy for us and there's buidling under construction and people working across our room. Noisy- because of construction as early as 7am. To give credit to the staff, they did not transfer us to a different room when i complained (there's no available twin room so they offered me on a bunk bed which i say better than the other room)
