It is like stepping back in time. The paintings on the ceilings, on the walls. Absolutely beautiful. No elevator but staff carried our luggage. They also, carried it down when we had to go to airport for 4:30 in the morning. Only thing I didnt like is the smell of the place. Probably the dampness from the ocean or the...

Stepping into this hotel is like stepping back in time. The furnishings and decor are quaint and charming. A visual delight. The location on the waterfront make for a wonderfully centralized place to visit the citywide. The problems are small, but should be noted: 1. Long flight of steps to the front door. 2. Inconsistent water pressure and temperature in...

I arrived very late and the driver found the hotel with no problem. It is in a residential neighborhood with cobblestone streets and right on the river. So, if you like to walk, it is very scenic. There are several security checkpoints on this street where there are guards that prevent outsiders from coming in. I liked that. I noted...

Having booked the rooms for the family more than a half a year in advance we ended up in rooms in the rear building. Here the concept of "antique" and "old" are mixed-up: the facilities were just in a bad state; air conditioning, wifi, tv,... not working; bedsprings loud enough to keep one awake all night; the carpet too dirty...

Steep stairs to entrance. Buzz to be let thru gate. May not get response. More steep stairs. Our tour booked our group at this place. The hotel was supposed to pick us up at the airport. Even though we called ahead when we found we'd be delayed there was no one to greet/tranport us. Information person in airport tried to...

We were there 3 nights. Positive: Great location--can walk around arts area and Malecon. It is unique, for sure. And Pablo, who does everything with a smile: carries luggage, serves and clears breakfast, brings water and towels, and is the only person there who seems to care about guests. So, service from Pablo was great, but from everyone else, very...

The hotel is ideally located and easy walking distance from several great sights. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, especially Abel who greeted us and gave us great tips. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, had a small balcony and a very nice view. There is a lovely roof top terrace.

What an amazing hotel full of chandeliers and antiques every where you look! In an excellent location in a very safe area right by river with walking distance to Las Penas, Malecon 2000, iguana park and cathedral. Couple of nearby bars. Room was great, massive comfortable bed, ensuite, air con, fridge and complementary water. Rooftop bar with river view. Friendly...
