Apparently, I didn't research this place as well as I usually do. It was more guest house, than hotel. The location was excellent, ( although, any closer to the seedy San Lorenzo market would have been a deal breaker )and the price was decent. My room on the other hand, was a different story. It was clean, but had the most hideous paint job I've ever seen! And I'm a painter. Bright yellow walls, with a yellow and green fabric light fixture hanging over the bed. It would literally give you a headache if you looked at it too long.No refrigerator in the room, or available ice. The thermostat was tempermental, and often gave off a crackling sound, as if wires were sparking. Frankly, I left it off most of the time,as this did not seem to be safe to use. The bathroom was fine, but the shower ( no tub ) was in desperate need of an update. The rusty shower rod discolored anything you hung over it, as well. Room service seemed a little ticked that I didn't want daily cleaning, and were a bit annoyed when I stated as much. Breakfast was super super basic, but did the trick. I didn't completely hate the place, but probably wouldn't recommend staying there.
