Property condition


    Rate convenience

    Increasing of the rates taking advantage from Festival issue. My room doesn't accomplished with described in web page, despite a expedia.com representative called directly to hotel to reconfirm the reservation and the hotel guaranteed my 2 double beds, at check-in, never didn't. I complained with the hotel and they said there wasn't available rooms, a expedia.com representative contacted with hotel and also said there wasn't available rooms. At the end I had to paid extra $100.oo more to get the same room I asked for on the reservation. So, there was available rooms but the doesn't give it to me because the Festival issue, no matter I did my reservation three months ago. Disappointed❗

    Stayed 1 night in Dec 2017



    I was there for a couple days and in that time had about 3 mins of internet connection.

    Pros: decent breakfast and relatively friendly staff

    Cons: fix the lights in the garage and the internet

    Location: plenty of city life just minutes away

    Stayed 2 nights in Feb 2017


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Never again

    Terrible sleeping experience. Sheets too small for the bed. The bathroom floor was damped and had water coming out all the time. We saw a small cockroach the first night and complained and asked for better bed sheets and next day they were the same ones.

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Great old hotel with modern showers

    The people running the hotel are great. We had a good breakfast, and very much enjoyed our stay there. They were very helpful with anything we needed.


    • Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort

    Apenas regular

    Regular. La ubicación es muy buena. La habitación es muy pequeña, la cama suena mucho aun durmiendo solo. Poca comodidad para reunirse en función de trabajo. El Wifi es muy debiciente.
