    Warning: 24/7 Construction Site Next Door

    Let me start by saying I never right reviews unless they are good, but this is something your NEED TO BE AWAY OF - This hotel is located right next to a construction site which they neglect to tell you upon check in. The construction site is active all night long. This is not normal city noise it is loud and right outside your door making it sound like the construction is in your room. When we contacted the front desk they were unhelpful and wrote off the situation. It is an unfortunate situation for them but had they been upfront about it or offered some kind of a credit or refund we would have been satisfied. The hotel is older but it is in a great location and the beds are comfortable and clean. That being said I would NOT recommend staying here for a while the construction next door is no where near completion.

    Construction noises all night

    The hotel itself is nice and clean. A little run down but the beds are clean and hotel is in a great location. The problem is there is a large construction site next door and they work until 1 or 2 am. It’s a massive site and it was impossible to sleep. We weren’t made aware of the construction before the fact and it was definitely an issue.

    The hotel was okay, but the noise from the outside was horrible. The hotel is located next door to a Salsa Bar, at a busy intersection, and across from a plaza entering in the old city. Beginning around 3 p.m. a group of dancers with their African Drum Combo began dancing the night away. This was also an area where they loaded up open air busses with tourists and gave them maracas, cleaves and other various noise makers to drive through the town accompanied by loud music. If that wasn't enough, taxi drivers honk at every single pedestrian they see. All in all, the noise didnt stop until sometime after 3 a.m. so I didnt get much sleep.

    Initial room was small and cramped. Change of room was accommodated after waiting at front desk. room certainly could have been cleaner. No chairs on balconies overlooking courtyard.
