    Quaint, traditional property located on beautiful square. Very convenient (2 blocks away) from cathedral/centre of town.

    1st two nights I was in room at front of property unfortunately convent across square started bell ringing at 6.30am. Shortly thereafter the road directly below window became very busy with lost of traffic & horn honking making lay-in’s not possible. 3rd & 4th nights I moved to a room at rear of the property & had no noise problems whatsoever. Also musician with extraordinarily LOUD amplifier played between 5-9pm on two evenings during my stay.

    Great location. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Good value.

    Rooms with one bed are tiny. We had a lot of luggage so paid an extra 200 pesos per night for a larger room with 2 beds.

    It is very beautiful, clean, renovated bathrooms, lots of hot water. The staff helped us as much as they could in my broken Spanish.

    It is a little out of the center

    Very clean and neat! The staff is also very friendly and helpful. It is very, very cheap compared to other hotels in the area.

    It’s noisy! But that’s almost foreseeable when you see they felt the need to put up a sign at the desk that says the lobby is a quiet zone. But we were out from early to late so it was a minimal inconvenience in spite of the fact one chatty guest with a booming voice talked at the top of his lungs early and late.

    Located in the historic center of town, close to many museums, the cathedral, restaurants and cafes.

    Looked okay and interestingly historical online (and supposedly I chose a room with a balcony when I booked), but we wound up in Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs. Tiny, grim-looking room with terrible lighting, no lamps, and no windows to the outside. (We didn’t need it on this visit, but no A/C.) Definitely no balcony. Windows opened on the hall and make it feel very un-private. We had to ask at the front desk for towels. Bathroom smelled like mildew and old drains, and toilet leaked around the base. No shower curtain or enclosure for the water so the whole bathroom winds up wet. Giving two stars for relative cleanliness and proximity to downtown, but you can do a lot better for the same price elsewhere, and a LOT better for ten or fifteen bucks more.
