Excellent alternative to the crowded Miraflores

Posted Apr 18, 2016
Pros: Staff. Amenities, food.
Cons: Pool is small and shallow.
Great location in the popular "foodie" San Ysidro district . Lots of great shops and restaurants within walking distance Lively park across the street. It's a business hotel so somewhat quiet on the weekends. PERFECT!

Love the area, needs some refurnishing

Posted Nov 9, 2015
Pros: location and friendly staff
Cons: decoration, A/C and room furnishing
Location: The El Olivar park right in front is magestic. Only ancient olive trees, and very quiet to be right in the midle of the city.
The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful at all times. This is a great point! Room service is good and quick. I took less than 20 min to get my order in my room, hot and tasty, both times. I love the area where the hotel is located, and the amazin olive tree park it has in front, but the hotel needs to be renovated to a more morders look. It looks outdated. In this stay, I arrived very late at night, and the check in process was quick and friendly. However, I didn't like the room, as the window faced a inner shaft, and had no natural lighting, and the A/C had a loud sound. I asked for another room, and they were quick and accomodating to fix me into another room with a nicer view. Unfortunately, the A/C was one of those wall mounted, and too loud to sleep. I was lucky that it was not too hot or humid, so I could sleep fine without it. The bed is comfortable, but the I don't like the carpet and other details that gives me the feeling of an 80's decoration style. Will probably stay here again, as the location is unbeatable for my activities.
