  • Liked: Staff & service

This hotel was located in a great location in Palmero. Convenient and safe. The staff were super friendly and helpful.lets just say the hotel is instagram worthy for the design but Its functionality no. Unfortunately, my experience during my stay was not so great. The elevator broke and was out of service for our entire duration of our stay. We had to go through the stairs across and take the other elevator down, just an inconvenience to do everyday. No hot water for the day as well. The ac hardly worked and blew out air not cold and bed was hard and squeaky. Overall not a bad stay but just the one time we went there were tons of mishaps.
