Small hotel, with very clean , small rooms, and even smaller beds. In the centre of town. A bit noisy, especially on weekends with the disco. Our room was located practically in the lobby/reception area , near the coffee machine and the lobby/reception TV. Loud conversations and television woke us up several times in the night.

I stood there only one night.. The hotel is good for just sleeping.. I liked that they had hot water and air conditioner.. But the wifi was really bad.. My parents also slept in another room and they didn't sleep anything because there was a party close by and they heard everything, music and people screaming.. I didn't hear much... More

This is a no frill budget hotel with free WiFi, average hotel rooms and a friendly staff. It is centrally located, so you can either take a taxi ( We use... More

This is a great small hotel in La vega. I was surprised that it was so clean and well kept. As soon as you walked in there was a smell of lavender, almost like a spa type of smell! The front desk employee was very accommodating and friendly ( cant remember his name) but anything we asked for they were... More

Simple, clean and spartan room. No hot water. Very friendly staff and new restaurant on top floor is good. Service is a bit "local", meaning a little slow, but very friendly. Price compared to the "upper end" hotels is about 1/3 of the price.

The hotel is very nice, especially, considering the price. The reception staff was very friendly and quick to respond to any requests. There were a few details that needed attention but did not detract too much from a pleasant stay. For example, upon arrival, in order to reach the main level, you must climb a set of stairs that would... More

Hot water, air conditioning in every room, flat screen TVs in every room, wifi, and a lobby that includes bottled water and a Nescafé coffee machine. What else could you possibly want?! The staff are very friendly and the rooms are cleaned daily.

This is a very nice hotel for the price of US$ 40.00 which includes Wifi and very comfortable rooms! It is the only option in La Vega City and you will not be dissapointed! We stayed 2 nights and were very happy with this place!
