I paid $66.00 for a little room, with little bed that was supposed to be king size, construction everywhere, terrible smells in surrounding areas, didn't really feel safe and where was the big swimming that was on there website? Won't go back there, front desk was friendly.

This hotel is one of the best for the price. I've stayed here the last 3-4 years and there is free water downstairs and breakfast (toast and coffee). It is all fine. There is a shuttle to/from the airport - so long as the flight is not at midnight. These are operated by VIAJES FLORENCIA TOURS. This company has a...

It's not a fancy hotel but is a great value for money. Got a room for $20/ night. Room was clean and people at the front desk were genuinely helpful. It's very well located in the city in terms of access to the hotspots. Breakfast is just bread and butter with coffee and powdered juice but hey one can't complain...

We stayed here because it was cheap and offered free breakfast and free ride to the airport. We had reservations that I had printed out and handed to the desk clerk. Reservations said either a King or two double beds. They sent us to a room that had one double bed, stank, and the air conditioner had no knobs. Went...

First off I want to say if your an experienced budget backpack traveler, you will find this place okay. The rooms are clean with hot shower and quiet working aircon. The daytime guy at the front desk speaks some english and is willing to help you with your needs. All other staff speaks very little or no english and are...

This hotel was horrible! The staff is unfriendly (understatement), the room is damp, smelly, the airco doesn't work, the breakfast is 4 slices of bread with butter (nothing more) and you feel like being in a prison. We left as soon as we could!

The hotel offers free transfers from/to airport, but it doesn't work easy: I waited more than one hour in the airport and only got the transfer after I called the hotel 3 times. They kept saying they couldn't do anything because an angency was the one who would pick me up. I don't care, if the hotel sells this offer,...

Pros: - The free airport shuttle is nice. Cons: - Our room was small, humid, smelly and had no window. It looked like prison. - Neighbourhood is not very interesting. - The reception doesn't speak any English. When you speak almost no Spanish on your first day of vacation, this can be hard.
