The building was once a lovely large palace, I think. Beautiful terrazzo floors. Our room was clean and the TV and air conditioning worked, but the foyer and hallways and stairs were dusty and dirty. The elevator would not open to the third floor. The stairs to the third floor were partially blocked by some sort of construction scaffolding. So getting our suitcases to our room was an effort. The owner/manager was friendly and helpful and speaks good English. All said, the price was very inexpensive and the location was great, easy walking distance to sites and many restaurants just meters away. Watch out for petty criminals who will ask you for money to watch your car.
