We stayed here on two occasions for a total of three nights. The first stay was two nights in "Santiago" and then we had another solo night in "Harvard" - the latter room was definitely much nicer than the former, in terms of the feel of the room, the quality of the bathroom, and the noise levels overnight.
The property is an historic house which was the home of Franz and Trudy Blom, who were European in origin but became experts in the region. It now serves as a museum, hotel, and a place for the indigenous peoples to stay when they come to San Cristobal to sell their handicrafts for example. It is not your typical tourist hotel, but that's what gives it charm and character.
There's no TV, but there is Wi-Fi. The rooms have fireplace, in which the fire is set and ready to be lit, to combat the chilly winter evenings. The furnishings are in keeping with the nature of the building, and comfortable.
The location means that it is a little distance to the main square and the main pedestrian strip, but easily walkable, meaning you get to see a little more of the town.
For a unique experience, this hotel is recommended. For anyone needing modern and luxurious comforts, with everything on the doorstep it is not!
