Very nice little hotel, the room was small, but comfortable. The room has a little heater, that is very nice in the morning and the evening, when it’s cold outside. The breakfast is very good. The staff very friendly and helpful.

Great location near the Plaza de Armas with friendly staff and wonderful accommodations. Within walking distance of the Market and many food and beverage choices also within walking distance. Accommodations were clean, well kept with an onsite restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner.
