Old place that could use some upgrading but it is in a fantastic location in the best part of the city with coffee houses, restaurants, bakeries, etc very near by. I booked it because it was the best price in town and then found out it included a complete breakfast. Incredible really. It is on a busy street so the rooms facing the front are kind of noisy so if you are a light sleeper maybe pay a few dollars more for a quiet room. The bad reviews on here are by people who expected a $150 room for $40. Numbskulls. the place is clean and the people who work there are helpful and friendly. The only thing missing is upgrading the mattresses and a decorators touch. Oh, and if you plan on getting to know the best area of the city, Barrios Amon, Otoya, there is probably no safer hotel.
