La Casa de Melgar : Service with a big smile
La Casa de Melgar is in a beautiful old building. Breakfast, with a selection of fruit, juices, yoghurt, bread as well as ham, cheese and eggs is served in a boring area, although you can have it in the beautiful garden. The rooms have very high ceilings which can turn the room quite chilly in the evening (there is no heating, so make sure that the sun warms up the room during the day) The shower is good, but unfortunately too much water was spilled before it was warm/hotthe area is quite close to the Plaza de Armas and Santa Catalina monastery and next door is a great pizzeria and close by are a coffee house/Biergarten and very good laundrette. Staff was just amazing.

Beautiful property and convenient location. Noisy because of thin walls.

10/10 Exceptional

Loved the atmosphere at this unique hotel. The rooms were designed around the colonial stone architecture, and the community breakfast nook in the courtyard/garden was a beautiful, tranquil oasis with flowers and hummingbirds, and tasty eggs to order. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful to arrange transportation.

10/10 Exceptional

Loved this older hotel. One of the rooms did not have much light and the water pressure was low. Our other room didn’t have this problem.

Excellent room in beautiful building
This was an excellent room (expect tasteful bare stone walls and original furniture) with a large, clean bathroom. The property offers a fantastic range at breakfast, which is served within the beautiful grounds. Highly recommended.

4/10 Fair

Charming but iffy on cleanliness
Check in was fine but it looked like the front desk guy checked the bathroom just then to see if it was OK. He thought it was but it wasn't. In addition to the old condition of the towels, gray and tattered, there was actually what looked like blood splattered on one. The sheets looked mostly clean, very small pillows, but on the cover there were many stains and hairs on the inner layers of covers. Yes we could have asked to switch rooms or have it fixed but it was the end of a long travel day and we were exhausted. Bring a pack towel and shower slippers and check your room thoroughly. We checked out a day early.

Excellent choice!
The hotel was in a great location being only a short walk to the plaza de armas, the monastery (must see!) and restaurants and shops. The hotel is very old, which we absolutely loved! The character was amazing and the grounds were beautiful with a garden to view during breakfast. The hotel staff were excellent! We loved that we chose to stay here and would definitely return if we ever have a chance to in the future :)
