Casco Viejo
Such a cute hotel. We loved how it was located in the middle of Casco Viejo. We spent the three days we were there in and out of the hotel. The staff was beyond friend and helpful. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and quiet. Will def consider staying there again

Awesome Weekend Away Place!
Great location... not too touristy, but not to out of the way. Great hotel and staff. Very friendly. Free WiFi. We stayed for 4 days and would have stayed longer if we could. Very walkable to many area sites, with lots of options for food within a few blocks.

Good 6.0
Nice hotel, mediocre service.
Hotel is a nice venue in the heart of the Casco. It is comfortable and up to date; however, there are several lingering issues with this hotel. The soft product, that is to say-service, is somewhat lacking. As one of the most expensive hotels in the city, I would have expected more. My room did not have a shower curtain/glass and water would get everywhere. I asked the hotel to correct it, that was never fixed. The best part was when a wedding was held in the lobby with music blasting until 1am-that two stories up you could clearly hear in the rooms. Hotel management claimed they sent a letter, but nobody in my group received the letter. I had to switch rooms which eventually fixed the noise issue (and the shower). However, I am shocked a hotel would allow for such a loud event on a night. Overall, the hotel was nice but service was somewhat lacking. I did not use the gym/pool but it did look nice.

Great location but few things to be aware of: 1) the bathroom showers do not have a curtain which means water gets all over the bathroom floor and 2) because of the location, it can get loud depending on where your room is located. I would not stay here again for the price. Better options are available.
