This property's interior could use some modernising. A mini fridge in the room and some natural light would have improved the stay considerably. However those are the only criticisms. My stay overall was positive. The staff are all very friendly and went the extra mile to be helpful especially since I didn't speak much Spanish. The hotel was very clean. The room was spacious enough and there was a coffee maker and a microwave. Even though the breakfast lacked variety it was free and you have to pay for the breakfast at many of the larger more expensive hotels so I think that is a plus. If you didn't want breakfast there, there was an Ihop and Subway in walking distance that open early. For lunch and dinner there are several different types of restaurants in walking distance (Italian, Chinese, Japanese, local). There were also several bakeries for your sweet tooth. Across the street from the hotel were a pharmacies and stores with supplements. That came in handy when I realised I made some omissions in my packing.There were also several small grocery shops and a Do It Centre. Basically everything you need at your fingertips. Another good thing about the location was transportation. It is a convenient location for tour pick ups. You can get Uber from the hotel to 3 major malls and the Casco Viejo area or explore Metroplitan National Park for just 3-5 US. I never had to use the nearby train station because Uber was so cheap. Overall this hotel is good value for the price.

Have been on this hotel many times over the years, even with the previous administration. Is a very good location right across a shopping mall with many dinning options, is a safe area of the city.

You can always count on a good simple breakfast, TV ‘s was a problem, they weren’t in the best conditions, apart from that everything is simply great especially if you are travelling by yourself, I stayed y the suite and in the single queen bedroom and there we're just Fine.
