Beautiful building, friendly staff, great location! Vibrant city. The only reason it doesn't get 5 points is the breakfast, that just wasn't up to par, and some not too professional cocktails. The room was spacious and clean

This hotel is majestic, beautiful colonial building. We did not stay but went there for there drinks and coffee a couple of times. Great coffee and happy hour I think was 4-8pm which is not bad. Great location near the cathedral and opposite O'Shea the Irish bar so a buzzing street. Excellent staff except when it came to change when...

Stayed for two nights in this wonderful hotel. It's right in the centre of the town but inside it's extremely quiet and peaceful. Set out around three internal open air but shaded courtyards. Our room had windows onto the far courtyard at high level and had an enormous (7 ft at least) double bed with fine white bed linen. Bathroom...

A beautifully-maintained Spanish colonial hotel. Friendly staff and excellent location. The balconies provide amazing view. You'll find included amenities that are out of the ordinary for Latin America. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Hotel is situated on the main street where all the action happens, good for restaurants and bars, bad if you have a room at the front for noise. I loved the colonial architecture, rooms are quite small with bathroom a little dated. Small outdoor pool. Breakfast was good but nothing special. Downside to our stay were the staff, unfriendly welcome,...

All around fine hotel. For the same price, there are better options, especially Hotel Plaza Colon. Cleaner, larger, better service, more hospitable, better facilities (especially the pool). The rooms are small, a little worn around the edges, beautiful hotel but a little worn. If you want to be located right on the Calzado (noisy, lots of bars and restaurants) this...
