Wifi was fast, room as in the pictures, modern and stylish. Pleasant ambiance and a safe neighborhood. Friendly, helpful staff. Underground and street parking, but street parking is notfor daytime, so you need to call ahead if you will need underground parking. Breakfast had a variety of fruits, drinks, deli meats, breads, yogurts, cereals, coffee, and different sweet spongecakes.
Safe in room is not laptop size (not even macbook air) despite what is listed in the description.
Would definitely stay again.
"Overall good value but the area not recommended"

The AK Design hotel has recently been totally remodeled. It is located in a rather shady area which is not recommended for evening or night walks. Additionally, it is located in the old part of the city which does not have much to offer when it comes to a selection of restaurants or evening clubs. That being said, the rooms have a very modern décor with nice finishes. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The front desk staff was very friendly and spoke English well which was helpful. They did not hesitate to help with any bookings or recommendations. On the final note, the service we used to book it (through hotels) did not forward our reservation to the hotel so I am giving 0 stars rating to the booking provider for unreliable service. 4 stars for the hotel.
"Great neighborhood, helpful staff"

I absolutely thought this place was a find. It was in a great little neighborhood two blocks from the beach and close to great stores and restaurants. The room was comfortable and I was amazed they had HBO on TV. The staff worked very hard to help me with all my needs although most did not speak much english. I liked that mostly South Americans stay here. We were the only Americans. I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed here for one day. The staff was extremely helpful in helping us track down our luggage lost by the airline. there are several fast-food type restaurants nearby open late. close to the beach. the room, although a little dated in decor, was large and very clean. the kosher breakfast included with our stay was good.
"Nice place, great breakfast"

We only stayed here for one night. The room was large and had plenty of storage. The room was pretty clean (not the cleanest), but generally not bad. Staff was helpful. The hotel is a few blocks away from Plaza Indepenza and in a pretty safe area. The breakfast was absolutely amazing! There was a HUGE buffet. We would stay here again.
