    400 year old hotel in Mexico. What could possibly go wrong? Right? It was magic. Typical. Noisy. Entertaining. Refreshing. Stuffy. Central. Convenient. Loved it. Any other hotel would not have enriched our trip like this one.

    No. But then again I have seen few hôtels in Mexico with a safe in the room. Probably in the all inclusives on the beach. You can probably store your expensive items at the reception.
