Pretty to look at, only ok to sleep & eat in
Breakfast was mediocre, lukewarm, and exactly the same each day, which is a drag when you're staying multiple days. Coffee was quite dreadful. Thankfully I was the only one in the bed, as it had a person-sized divot in the middle from all the previous occupants; new mattresses or at least turning them would be a plus. Asked for a new lightbulb in my room as it was missing entirely, took them 24 hours and 2 requests to brig one. Charged an additional "service" fee on top of my prepaid in full fee, neither of you will cop to it, so this may be my last stay with both Margarita and

Two relaxing evenings in a quiet neighborhood
Elegantly furnished, reminiscent of early 20th century design. Nice change from today's modernistic interiors, which begin to look all the same. Bountiful breakfast choices.Walking distance to interesting attractions.
