No breakfast included was a shame. Staff were helpful


Showers are cold and the water pressure is non existent. The kitchen looked like it had never been cleaned and so do the rooms. The bed sheets smell and look like they had never been washed. The owner is also constantly trying to sell you a bigger and more expensive room and a tour organised tours which can be quite annoying. On the plus side it lies close to the plaza de armas and all the shopping facilities. It is also possible to negociate the price of the room a little.


Good price, friendly staff, comfortable facilities. The bathrooms were quite old and didn't have toilet paper but it wouldn't deter me from staying. Adequate kitchen, fast wifi. Very nice, quiet place.


We stayed a couple of nights here and had a nice time. Th kitchen is small but functional and the upstairs terrace is really lovely. The staff were very helpful and gave us great tips on where to go and where to find economical food. A very nice place!
