    The location is perfect: just on the half way from the historical center to the famous fort San Felipe and very close to them.

    The room was not clean. We could get towels only after additional request. The bed-sheet was not washed well. There is no door in the bath room and the toilet: only the curtain. The conditioner in anchient. Although the breakfast was said to be served from 7-00, at this time it was only begun to cook, so we could have breakfast only 30 minutes later.

    I`d say it`s fine for what you pay. The staff on reception are very helpful and the rooms are air conditioned. The location is fantastic.

    The breakfast was average to say the least and the staff serving it were just short of blatantly rude!

    Good location,very easy access to the old town.

    Staff weren't friendly.
