Si S. Couples China, September 29, 2015
Classic and historical hotel, nice location/staff

Location, staff and breakfast coffee
It is a huge hotel, and I almost lost my way to the room. The hotel is located at San Martin Square, but only a few rooms have the view of the square. We had a room aside the street, which is a bit noisy during evening and morning. The room is simple and bed is not very comfortable, but the bath room is very big. I love the coffee in the breakfast especially, probably I had so much light coffees days before. The reception area is unique and interesting, very ancient and classic. A lot of famous names stayed in this hotel before. I will advise the hotel to decorate the rooms to a high standard, then plus its history and location, it would be one of the best hotel in the city.

Great location & good value

Excellent location, friendly & helpful staff, good value for money
The hotel is charming & in its heyday, was probably among the best. Now a bid worn out. Could use some new hallway carpets. The bathrooms should be redone. The bed is a bid hard, and the blankets too heavy, so not so comfortable. Breakfast is good, but the bread/toast should be served warm. Nevertheless, excellent location, friendly staff made it a very pleasant & convenient stay. Good value for money.

Faded glory but great value for money.

Size of the rooms, location, balconies
Stayed for 3 nights in the Presidential Suite. It has seen better days but the rooms were huge and gave a feel of what it must have been like in it's full pomp. One large balcony and 2 smaller ones, The bedroom balcony looking out on to the Plaza St Martin. The air conditioning could have worked more efficiently, the breakfasts could have had more variety and the receptionists could have pretended to care a bit more. However the hotel was well worth the stay and was great value. Not sure where else we could have had this experience and a taste of this sort of hotel at the price we paid. One thing to be aware of, many protest are held in and around the Plaza some of these can erupt into violence and you could end up with tear gas in the rooms - as we did. Another part of a unique experience:)
