    Item stolen from room
    Nice and pretty hotel and good area. Most things are within walking distance. The dining staff was very friendly and very servicial. We enjoyed our interactions with them. The one day we had to call because room service did not come. The noise of the main road was a little disrupting at times. When they have events, it disrupts the stay of the guests. There was a wedding and all morning the pool area was disrupted to prepare for the event and the noise in the evening was not respectful to the guests. I HIGHLY recommend putting any valuables in the safe; I bought a phone accessory that was new and unopened and unfortunately found the seal broken and the product not in the box. I trusted that my items would be respected and they weren’t; but it was my fault for trusting that my things wouldn’t be stolen. It was a nice stay, however discovering something small was stolen was a downer on our trip and leaves a poor impression of the staff and hotel.

    Loved it
    Very enjoyable stay, we were on the 3rd (top) floor for easy access to the pool and one of the best places in the city for afternoon cocktails.It was a 10 min walk to the old town, (And all the tourists and higher prices).The hotel is in the Getsemani area and is full of places to eat and drink.There are quaint back streets with hanging flags and umbrellas. Breakfast was a really nice buffet with multiple fruit and juices ,eggs pancakes etc. We highly recommend this hotel

    Great Hotel!
    The staff was awesome! They were very helpful. My sister's birthday was during our stay and they helped us get her a cake to celebrate. Their onsite guide, Cesar was excellent. He set everything up for us and always checked in on us. When we had questions, he was quick to answer and resolve our problems. The rooftop pool and bar was a nice bonus after a long day of walking to relax. The whole atmosphere was very tranquil.

    Maintenance required
    Very nice hotel, well located. However, it would need a good cleanup and painting. A part of the wood ceiling was rotten and pieces were falling in the bed.

    Great Staff and Location But a Bit Noisy
    Overall, the staff provides great customer service and the hotel is in a great location. Right in the heart of the Getsemani neighborhood where there are plenty of restaurants and bars. Only thing that was not ideal was the noise. The room states it was a "soundproof room". This is definitely not the case. You can hear noises from the street and music from clubs. Also, construction is going on because hotel is being renovated so you can also hear that. Still a great deal but just be aware that if you want to take a day nap or sleep in during the morning, it may not be that easy. Overall, would still recommend!

    Charged for mini bar items not used
    The trip was great but had an issue at check out. We were charged for items that were brought in from the outside as mini bar items. I expressed my concern at the time of check out but it did not make a diffrence.

    Great hotel and perfect location.
    The location is ideal. Close to the most turístic area but far enough not to be in the mess of that area. The restaurant of the hotel was being updated but it was not a problem. Hotel is beautiful. We stayed at the room with two floors. Really nice. Communication between shifts needs to improve. Things discussed and agreed with the morning shift was unkown by the evening shift. Everything else was great. Good breakfast.
