6/10 Good

Poor Internet.. Very Noisy..

4/10 Fair

The staff were very friendly and the property was in very close proximity to the ADO Bus station. What was negative about the Hotel is that it is in need up updating to the rooms as the interior look nothing like the pictures from the website. There are no pictures on the walls, or and decorative items, only on night table for the bed, one chair(folding) and the bathroom sink faucet leaked water continuously and sink was stained from it along with broken floor tiles. The shower had the same issues starting with an old shower head making the spray pattern lacking. The hotel restaurant hours were lacking and you were unable to get any other food or drink items unless you left out of the hotel and locate a 24 hour OXXO store. I would definitely never stay at this hotel again , it was not worth the price paid.

Historic shouldnt mean run down
I feel the hotel was run down not hiatoric. Staff were not friendly at reception or helpful. A bit further away from downtown. Only near the Ado bus terminal. Street noise from traffic all night. Poor water pressure in the shower and the bathroom felt dark and old. Lastly the main staircase is lovely but not when caerying 3 pieces of luggage. 2 big flights is a bit much for me.
