We had a wonderful experience with this hotel from start to finish. We arrived at midnight and made previous notification to the hotel to ensure they could accommodate us at this late hour. A friendly staff member was there to greet us, welcome us, and get us settled into our room. The friendly and helpful service continued throughout our stay (and we checked out at 3:00 a.m.). Alfonso had already arranged for our cab ride and helped load our luggage. Alfonso also made us a delicious breakfast each morning and was there in the afternoons for a snack or drink. I don't think Alfonso ever sleeps! We felt perfectly safe in this hotel and were very pleased with the accommodations. The friendly staff really made our stay enjoyable. The hotel is an easy two blocks from Plaza Grande, local shops, and eateries.
