You won't be disappointed staying here. The hotel is truly centrally located so you can walk everywhere. It's across the street from the police department, so you can't get much safer than that. The rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. The bathrooms are big and the water is always hot. My friend and I each had our own rooms...

this hotel is in a great location, has very nice and helpful owners on site, and also a kitchen, fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. The bedding is new and comfortable, and the details and architecture inside is beautiful as well.

Stayed at El Pequeno Hotel for two weeks and enjoyed every moment of my stay. My room was spacious, clean and cozy.

This place is perfect, and at a reasonable price. Murray and Lynne (I hope I got the names right) simply thought of everything. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean. While we didn't use the communal kitchen or the rooftop terrace, both were immaculate and charming. The hotel is perfectly situated, just 1 or 2 short blocks to retaurants, shops...
