Ok roof over your head, but should "update" itself”

Hotel is well-located, just around the corner of the main shopping street. Nearby there are plenty of options for food and grocery shopping. Room does not have "normal' power sockets and so we had to charge our phone and laptop with the reception (this is what I meant with "update") Shower was of a good heat and power. Unfortunately no water-heater (for tea/coffee) in the room (should "update" themselves. Breakfast was acceptable with a positive high variety of fruits The beds sinks a bit in the middle *(should "update")

Hotel venido a menos con mala atención”

Nada me gustó

Recuerdo desde hace varios años a este hotel como un buen hotelito. Hoy el estado del lobby es lamentable, pero lo mas llamativo es la pésima atención del personal de conserjería que nos trató en algunas oportunidades en forma francamente descortés, como si nos estuvieran haciendo el favor de alojarnos. Obviamente no nos alojaremos nunca mas alli. En un todo NO RECOMENDABLE. Un desprestigio para Agoda.
