This hotel is located right off the main square, with many restaurants in the walkway on both sides of it, and within walking distance of several museums and churches. The room we had was clean (except for a spot on the rug) and comfortable. It was a bit claustrophobic, though because there was only one small window which overlooked a... More

This place is right in the middle of the action. Right in front of the Cathedral, can't get more downtown than this. You get out to the "portal" where there are restaurants and people having beers or coffee. The breakfast is served on the 5th floor, nothing spectacular, but will give you fuel to start your day. Rooms are just... More

Expedia messed up my reservation and they quickly fixed it. There were a lot of things (loud things) going on outside in the plaza and I never heard any of it from my room. Room was modern and very clean. Cool elevator were you can watch how an elevator works.

The location is great because your are close to all the local markets and the land marks as well. As a photographer it is great because this hotel is in front of the famous cathedral.

This small hotel is well located in the heart of this beautiful city which dates back over 400 hundred years. The front rooms offer a lovely balcony with a small table where you can chill out while enjoying the view of the park and churches.

This hotel is very basic. We had a room on the ground floor which was basically a horribly windy hallway. I have never stayed in a hotel room without a window before and I have to say, I'd rather not repeat the experience! It felt very claustrophobic. The walls are obviously very thin as we could hear every single word... More

My guidebook (thank you Lonely Planet) didn't indicate that this had long since joined a chain and described this as the city's 'best midrange hotel' - they were wrong! The hotel isn't 'high design' or even minimalist - it is bare. All that said, I had a view of the main plaza & cathedral and the room was clean. The... More

This is obviously a budget hotel, but we didn't expect to get a room with no windows! Actually, there was a small strip of glass about 6 inches wide at the very top of the ceiling, but that was it. The room smelled musty, probably because no air ever gets in to it. It's located well, opposite the cathedral and... More

This hotel really only shows the best in the photos, Something that you will not get. Our room was small, without an opening window, which seemed to give to some sort of interior patio.
