I am super impressed with the authentic colonial style decor, friendly and helpful staffs around the corner to cater your every needs. Not to mention with the cleanliness of the entire hotel and comfort of the bedding. Highly recommended for families or anyone who adore high quality service n stay w reasonable charge.

A beautyfull inside with some but’s
We had a beautyfull room with all you need. We loved the wood theme and it was clean. We did not like that the air conditioning was working poorly. We didn't have a window to get some light from outside. The bathroom was without ventilation so the humidity stayed in the room. Yes you could open the window to the stairways but then again Moskitos humidity and heat. So we thought nice concept, great to stay at city center but way over priced.

The location is excellent as it is in easy walking distance to places of interest and great food. The Areca has an old-world charm as well as modern amenities providing both comfort and atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and the internal atrium has a range of comfortable seating options in a light and calm space. The staff are exceptionally helpful and thoughtful making our stay relaxing and enjoyable. I would happily stay here again.
