Pros: The distant view is phenominal, the rooms were clean, very new...
Cons: The view of the construction debris up close should be improved, they need to try and eliminate the bed frame from sticking out past the mattress (cut my leg twice) and the compressor under the 4th unit needs to be insulated to deaden the sound.

Elevation is higher, so can be a little cool in October when we were there.

Pros: The breakfast was okay. We booked it two times. Second time the reastaurant was closed and they didnt wanted to repay us the money. They didnt even told us.
Cons: Service They know no english!

Pros: Very close to the bus to and from Rio Sereno. Lovely staff and some speak English. Very clean. Good WiFi. Comfortable bed.... then..... Look...what do you except for $US 30.? No water pressure...so bucket,cold, and chuck it over you. Toilet flushed though so don’t fret. Look...it’s a story to tell. Dogs barking all night..think I got a few winks around 3am...when they lost their voices...I think. Walls are so thin with gaps. Do not have sex ...er...with someone...in this hotel unless you want it advertised. Lights are not flattering anyway. I have cellulite but it looked pasty as well!!!!! Horribly unfair. Overall, I really cannot complain. Got sleep on the bus anyway. Ahhh.the rich tapestry of travel.
Pros: It's very basic. The bed and pillows were OK; I did manage to sleep OK. The hotel is on a quiet street: no loud music nearby and not a lot of traffic noise which is a plus. There is a table and chair and a couple of hooks on the wall to hang your clothes. There's a TV. Tracopa bus terminal is a few feet away. Center of town is within walking distance. There's a nice pizza restaurant near the taxi stand/sitting area.
Pros: Only 100m from bus stop.
Cons: Grim. Dark, unfriendly staff. Spoke rapidly in Spanish despite fact that it was obvious my Spanish was shaky. Most decor and furnishings old and broken or chipped.
