    No agradable.

    Los trabajadores son amables de lo mejor son las habitaciones en mal estado y mal olor, el agua de la regadera tiene un olor bastante feo al igual el de lavamanos no se puede enjuagar la boca con esa agua los dientes por que hasta asco da y fuga de agua de la taza la base del colchón en mal estado.

    Close to great restaurants, clean and comfortable.

    I liked this place. Definitely upgrade your room. I did the second level room and it was clean and modern. Honestly didn’t spend much time here but it is walking distance to some good restaurants. Pool was closed due to Covid-19.
