Violet is a very nice and reasonable place to be

cheap, located right in downtown, hot water for shower
Generally, it was a good place to be when the budget is not so plenty

Ok hotel. Location is great.

Location, location, loaction
Ok staff, clean room, internet, location. Only negative thing is your room is on 5th floor, no lift. But for 13- 15$ it's totally alright

cheap and ok for one or two nights.

centrally located
The stay was ok but not great. We'd booked for two nights nevertheless we had to change the room after a night. The staff wasn't too friendly and gave us some misinformation on several topics. The rooms are clean.

If you run out of your options you can choose it.

Charging $20 for mini fridge drinks
Upset. The only guy who speaks English treat you bad.

They might put you somewhere else

Maybe it's because I'm travelling alone but when I arrived, they claimed they had no room available anymore... and would bring me to another place a few minutes from Violet Hotel. I refused. Only after threatening they gave me a room at Violet. So Not really honest... because online there are always rooms available even when at reception they claim there are non.

Never book here
When we arrived, guy at front desk was drunk, mold everywhere in the hotel, plumbing leaks, no hot water, wifi suck. They lie and misrepresent so much, I don't know where to begin. My advice, don't book here, you will ruin your vacation.

Good location

The location. Clean.
A good budget hotel, well located. Room was basic but clean. Breakfast was also basic but ok. Staff were helpful and had reasonable English. Narrow steep stairs could be a problem for an elderly or not very active traveller.

Nunca repetiría ni se lo recomendaría a nadie

No tiene nada bueno que pueda destacar, falta de limpieza, hongos en el baño, personal muy poco atento y mal educado
En un principio íbamos a pasar 2 noches, pero con la experiencia que tuvimos con una noche ya fue suficiente.
