I sayed in this hotel for 2 nights last february 2007. It's a beautiful hotel, in the very heart of the town. The hotel is in a very nice colonial style, with beautiful inside patios.

The Hotel Flamboyant has a lot going for it. The location is great, one street back from the Zocola. The interior spaces (rooms and courtyards) are beautiful - plants, tiles, wall-colours.
