This hotel is very sketchy. Half the time the elevator wasn't working so we had to take the stairs which was very inconveniant. The food was decent though, but the wifi was terrible to the point you can't even connect. The room was decently clean but the beds were very hard and we did not get a good night's sleep. For a budget hotel, it did the job. It needs an improvement though.

I stayed one night as it was close to the hospital Metropolitano and very reasonably priced. It is very basic, no amenities except bar soap but the room was clean as were the sheets and pillows. The air conditioner worked well. No hot water tap on bathroom sibk, no coffee machine or clock but for $70 and a nice breakfast, I am not complaining. I popped across the street to Pizza Hut for supper.

I person I knew had her laptop stolen from their hotel room while they were out. The hotel didn't take responsability, they didn't even point them in the right direction to file a police report, they were completely useless, and they still charged them for the nights they stayed. I cant beleive a hotel can have such horrible service.
