Omelette,cafe, frutas - todo lo que necesitas que tener un día tan bueno! 2. Joel & Javi - on reception. Two of the nicest guys you...

From the moment I stepped in the door I felt at home. The building itself is over 500 years old dating back to the 1500s! The Staff was very welcoming and nice. Very calm and tranquil for being so close to the cathedral and the park. Very big kitchen that you can cook in and the breakfast was included! Can't...

Cons: the rooms are small. the fan is not so good and don't help much with the heat. in the second...

It was a great experience as you are at the heart of the city center. The people are nice, the place has plenty of interesting people to meet and they welcome you with a fresh drink! The most representative places are the Cathedral of San Ildefonso, Sorbetes Colón, and the local food around the Zocalo. If you go to the...
