The hotel is in a converted 17thC courtyard house on Bolivar opposite the university. It has decided style.
Reception is through a splendid doorway and has a cosy sitting area on one side with antique furniture and reception desk on the other with a beautiful icon of the Virgin Mary behind. Receptionists had reasonable English and were always friendly and helpful.
From reception you go into the first courtyard with dining room on one side and small cooking area which prepares the room service menu. There are tables and chairs here with two computers. Beyond is a second courtyard surrounded by rooms.
There is also access to a roof terrace with views across Sucre.
We had a room in the corner of the first courtyard. It was a large and pleasantly furnished room with plenty of space. We had two large beds, wardrobe, table with TV, long couch and fridge. There was nowhere to use the computer but an extra table and chair were quickly provided for us when we asked. There was free internet.
There was a small area with washbasin with the bath, shower and toilet off it. There were plenty of towels.
The hotel doesn’t do evening meals although there is a room service menu which seems to be available all day. This provided a choice of soups, pizzas, pasta, toasted sandwiches, plus extra vegetables or chips. These are cooked to order and can be eaten in the room or the courtyard. We used this for most of our evening meals. We enjoyed them – they were good value, nice and also filling.
Breakfast was a self service buffet which could be slow to put out. It was huge and there was plenty of choice – cereal, yogurts, fresh fruit, selections rolls and different breads, croissants as well as cakes and biscuits. Cheese and cold ham was available and eggs were cooked to order.
We loved this place. It had tremendous character.
