A hotel that's close to just about everything, in a safe and relaxed neighbourhood and with a park nearby (the Santa Lucia). A metro station is handily placed, the tiny breakfast bar - sometimes overcrowded if a group is staying and they all want to have their first meal of the day together - does good juice and the usual cheese and jams, and the - again cramped - reception seems to function alright.
Allow time to check out, because if you're standing at the desk with your bags, there's no room for anyone to get past you, and you're constantly having to say 'Excuse me'.
The rooms are clean, tidy and well-maintained, the small en suite showers are fine (the mini baths are too small to sit in, so you just use it as a bowl-shaped shower tray) and there's enough cupboard space.
We enjoyed a three-day stay here. It's very central and handy for everything, it's quiet at night - the city babble dies down by about 9pm - and it's reasonably priced.
All in all, no major issues.More
