Reviewed 10 September 2017 via mobile

I returned at 11pm and rang the bell over and over and rattled the doors loudly for nearly 1 hour trying to get the attention of the receptionist to open the door to no avail. I left to find the police to help. It took forever wandering the sketchy streets at night asking for the police station. Eventually I found the station and had to explain and then wait for the senior officer to arrive. We all left together, me and who appeared to be a police captain and another officer. I finally arrived back at the hotel at 1.30am. The streets were deserted other than vagabonds and druggies. The officer rang the bell numerous times and tried to call. Still nothing. I rattled the door non stop continuously for 10 minutes and finally the young male receptionist opened the door. Apparently he said he fell asleep which is ridiculous. He put my life in danger wandering the streets late at night alone. I will never recommend this hotel.

Let me start by saying this is a great location. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the price is right. I think in the $40 range. Breakfast is an additional $10. We decided to eat elsewhere, so they did refund our $10.
Again, i liked this place, but the staff is another story. We are not NEEDY guests. The employees were not friendly nor helpful. They didn't greet us or acknowledge us whether we were coming, going, or checking out. Not so much as a hello or goodbye. The lady at the front desk got a little snotty when we decided to eat out for breakfast. I have been in the service industry for over twenty years and service is everything. There are some things that can be overlooked if the staff is pleasant and welcoming.
There are too many other places to stay in the area, where the staff is pleasant. Try Azul on the next block. For the same price, plus a pool, the service staff was much better.

the place is nothing special and the staff is not very easy to get along with.
there was no parking place, even though it was declared so on booking. we were said to just park in the street in front of the place, that was guarded. we did so, but we never saw any guardian.
we didn't try breakfast.
the location is in the middle of the horrible city.
not very convenient in term of money for value.

With the central location, road noise and noise from the front desk, this place is pretty noisy. The front desk people watch tv and because there's a central tiled area it echoes & is probably louder than they realise.
My room was fairly small, but very clean, floors have a mirror finish.
AC works for an extra $12 per night, and is worth it.
There is a ceiling fan, but Leon is hot and humid this time of year.
Hot water in the shower.
Wifi in the room.
Central area for relaxing or breakfast ($5 extra).
Secure gate is locked all the time, just need to ring the bell to get in if no one is at the desk.
Also a communal fridge.

Best things first: the location couldn't be any more central, walking distannce to any point of interest.
The rooms are a peculiar mixture between vintage and old fashioned. They are comfortable, the beds are quite good, our bathroom was huge, the A/C actually worked, but they looked a bit drab and lacked a little freshness and colour. All in all, our 3 nights in this hotel were good, considering also the very fair price.
We didn't have any breakfast or any other services. You can park directly in front of the house and pay the watchman at the end of your stay.
