Best of the Capital O group so far
I would return to El Senador, the good outweighed the bad. This is the second hotel in a row I was assigned room 207. Good: WiFi. Finally!!! It stayed connected most of the time. I only had to login once. Moderate to good signal strength -easy to find -Nice lobby with couches -very large room -lots of counter space -firm pillows -Very little street noise in this room, except for the person who honked eight times in the huge garage at 3 AM -close walk to Mercado Hidalgo Moderate -The neighborhood is not considered safe by many. Even my Uber driver warned me to be very careful at night. I have spent several stays in Doctores, and I have never felt unsafe. -towels were not good (or bad). Frayed and dense. And they had a different hotel logo on them, LOL -free bottled water -free toiletries were unmarked and I think I washed my hair with hand cream. Bad: -I arrived to a room with no toilet paper -there was only one hanger in the closet -no drawers -plastic bedspread. Seriously! -terrible electrics. While there were light switches above the middle of the bed, there was no electric outlet within 4 meters of the headboard. This means you can’t plug in your phone or laptop and work in bed unless you bring an extension cord (which I do bring now). The quality of the lights and placement it’s not conducive to reading at night anywhere in the room. -backachingly hard bed. -2 Nights and I still don’t know which shower knob turns on the hot water

3/5 Okay

The bed was hard. I could hear people singing and having sex till 2am; I think it was a love hotel. There were people outside the hotel who blared their music till midnight. The room had one plug far away from bed. There was one in the bathroom and I had to charge my laptop in the bathroom and my phone in the room. The molding (where the wall and floor meet) was stripped giving the room a dirty feel. This is a "you get whay you pay for" type place. The pictures are a bit deceptive ao if you're picky in the slightest stay away. I've done peace corps and have lived in places like this but wouldn't recommend it.
