Indifferent / poor service - no warm welcome - just going through the motions / doing bare minimum. V noisy rooms, yes it's an old building - our house is older than this hotel and we have wooden double glazed windows. No air con. No curtains at the bedroom windows, just wooden blinds with gaps in so as well as being woken by noise in the night, we were then woken up at sunrise. Learning for us - don't torget to read customer reviews b4 booking!

While conveniently located, this hotel has some issues. While a historic hotel, this often seemed like a reason to overlook some of the basics. (There was no shampoo or soap in the bathroom dispensers, for example.) Upon check-in, our second-floor bedroom window (which actually opened onto a public walkway) was unlocked and opened. (Thankfully, we noticed and closed/locked it.) The hotel was pretty noisy. Would not stay again.

Great location but overall property wasn't very impressive. Rooms were small and overall condition of hotel was kind of run down although it was being classified as a "historic" building. I'd recommend this hotel only for people who really want to be downtown and aren't going to spend any time in their room. Frankly given the cost, there are other hotels only about 15 min walk that are a better value and who's properties are better kept.

The hotel's historix character is comfortabl and Ive enjoyes my stays over the last several years. Two drawbacks, however, stood out during this visit. The rest of Alvarado Street is feeling more cleanly and maintained. The Calle St. entrance is evwn less inviting. It is also concerning for safety purposes. While there, two individuals whi were not guests were in the hotel - one was one my floor charging his phone in the hallway near my room. The hotel is accessible to anyone; the elevator can be used by anyone to gain access to all floors and areas. I had planned to use the fitness facility but felt unsafe, alone, in that area of the facility. Perhaps installing access via room card only rear door, elevator usage by room card only, or have a staff desk at the rear entry.
