The hotel is not of the highest quality. Rooms are old, poor room and bathroom decoration, high audibility and no air-conditioning. But the staff is friendly, good breakfast for this hotel level. Location is average. 25 minutes on foot to the main pedastrian street. So I recommend it only if the price is attractive and your comfort requests are not... More

I have stayed here in the past and have enjoyed it. I disagree with the review that there is nothing close by. You can walk to a beautiful park with lots of action, soccer stadium, things to do and miles of trails (Park is about 3 blocks). You can easily walk to downtown, I have done it many times, maybe...

I stayed there for two weeks for a business trip. The standard rooms are old but also clean and the beds are comfortable too. They have a very good breakfast buffet with several options, all fresh and delicious. The staff is really friendly. Great location!

I booked the Hotel Autentico because it fit my budget and was nearby my dentist's office. Check-in was prompt and the lobby was comfortable. I got a room on the 3rd floor. On my way to the room I was a bit daunted by the empty hallway painted in white and green panels. The room had all the necessities but... More

When you enter into the lobby you think the rooms would be similar decor to the lobby which is very nice. Wrong! The rooms are severely outdated and old. It was ok for one night, but very disappointed . Since the rooms were depressing, we sat outside by the pool for the evening.

This hotel is beautiful and the pool is huge and deep. I stayed in a suite which was amazing. But the other rooms where my friends stayed didn't have a functioning ac. But other than that I would definitely stay there again
