Very nice hotel, good location for walking to churches, restaurants and shops. Due to some street repairs baggage had to be carried / portered 3 blocks to hotel. This temporary and the condition of a light rail line past the hotel might actually be a bit more convenient . Could benefit from additional lighting in the room. The toilet is... More

Unfortunately major road words for a rail line are occurring on the road out front, and will be for some time which meant parking quite a distance away. Otherwise this is in a great location and a beautiful building typical of the colonial history of the area. It is very close to the amazing blue domed 'new' cathedral and main... More

The hotel is very well located. The staff are nice. Rooms are spacious but could use a little revamping, so do all the sections of the hotel. If you look closely, you'll realize a few things are falling apart. Poor amenities. Breakfast very basic. Service very friendly.
