Great location in the heart of casco viejo. Rooftop bar boasts views of the city. Hotel design is modern with spacious room, good amenities and comfortable beds. The breakfast was good with a lot of options for dishes. One thing about the site is that the bathroom is evident to be a little run down but other than that clean hotel. If you’re looking for a quiet night to rest though would not recommend staying here on weekends as you can hear music and party from rooftop bar.

Weekend Nightmare
I don't usually write reviews, but i feels its important i share what occurred to me, so others are aware of this Hotel policy and practice. Booked my hotel room in November 2019, I arrive 3 months later and was told they have no record of my reservation. A completer lack of communication and horrible customer service after a 2hrs wait found out i was being sent to different hotel. Hotel refused to refund, claiming since i agreed to stay at the other hotel for one night forfeit my right to refund which was never presented in writing or verbally discussed with me. Stay away!!!! Horrible customer service and deceptive policy !!! Way better accommodation in the area!!! Don't believe the sales pitch!!!

The two front desk people we dealt with couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Our roo. Was spacious and had several different arras to it. Bathroom toiletries were super. Could have used a shower cap. The decor is hip and artsy.
