      I preferred the attention and care of the night receptionist, Felix, to the one in the morning. Felix showed honesty, concern for the guests, kindness and respect. Keep him.

      The transportation service you offered to and from the airport needs to be more clear. On the booking information it did not say how much the fare was. After several questions on line, I finally had the price at $140. When I arrived at the hotel, the driver you sent was going to change $175!! When I went to the reception with him to clear this up, it appeared to me that the receptionist agreed with the driver about this price. I had to remind him about my E-mails from Fl.and the agreement on the $140 fare. After some discussion I finally paid what was offered. Going back to the airport, I paid $130. thank you felix!!

      The hotel is supposed to be 4 starts, but facilities and room are in very poor conditions. Air conditioning didn't work, and everything was old and faded

      Its location is quite good. All other things very bad. I will never return there

      I didn't like that they charge for the wi-fi service, 10 dollars, for a day of service. it's not free as they said.

      I enjoyed the breakfast

      There was no discount for staying multiple nights. at least there wasn't one mentioned when booking online!

      Efficient old style hotel right in the centre of the downtown area. It has a lot of character and must have been of the latest design when it was built (which was probably in the 1930s)

      The free Wi-Fi which was advertised as being "high speed" was anything but. Probably the slowest connection that is available. Also, it requires a new and long and complicated password to be requested every day. The rate charged for the room was considerably higher than that quoted

      AirCon did not reach the room so it was an all night sweat. No hot water twice after long walks around the city. Breakfast bread, ham and tasteless cheese

      + Good breakfast; + place (just 1 block from Flordia)

      - They overpriced due to a very bad exchange rate (15% over the official exchange rate) --> a rip off - the air-con extremely loud and both knobs to regulate were missing. I asked (in good Spanish) 2 times within 1 hour for fixing. No reaction. Next day I could change room. But even there one knob was missing and the other one broken. - 4 stars???? yes, only the lobby looks like a 4-star hotel. 3 stars would by far be enough.

      Pretty central location, reasonably friendly and helpful staff who had English. Secure as well due to night porter.

      Breakfast not great. The exterior and entrance into the hotel is certainly of four star quality but inside is far from it so don't be fooled by the grand entrance! So for this reason, it felt overpriced for what you got.
