The hotel and staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel. They offered little touches which went a long way such as complementary drinks.

Great staff and location.
Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Great location with lots to do nearby. If you are using the trains, the station is quite close, with 24 hour reception.

The staff is really good. Clean good! Location is good. Low floor is the better option for elevator but the staff makes up for all to sweet.

Hotel owes me money
The room was not clean enough when we received it, there was dust all over the place specially under the bed, not clean enough for my cat and when we walked around the room our feet got dirty. They have not taken the previous trash out so there was trash from the previous guest. There was a bad smell coming from the bathroom, however from the second day it got better. They cleaned the room in the second day. We went to have a breakfast on the last day, and it was great until the charged us for two days when I just mentioned we only had breakfast for one day. They mentioned that they would refund the money on the same day however I have not received it yet, it's been a month. They could have just pay me back on the checkout in cash but they didn't even mention it. They stopped answering my emails regarding the refund. Be aware of this type of things when you book a 4-star hotel in a small town.

Nice little boutique hotel. Great breakfast and amenities. Paid street parking is relatively easily available. Bigger paid parking is available nearby. Staff is very friendly. Balcony is NOT in every room.

10/10 Exceptional

I greatly enjoyed my stay at Villa Otero! It was the perfect spot for a cozy room, a yummy & sufficient breakfast bar, and free espresso at any time of the day to help with jet lag. It is about a 7 minute walk to the main street, and 20 minute walk to Old Town where all the restaurants/beach is. It is only a 2 minute walk to the Grand Central train station, which is very easy commuting. I stayed in a business room for 1 for an entire week, and was really pleased. Even though the room was small, it had everything I needed and was cleaned regularly to keep the small space tidy and well equipped. The only thing that could make it better was a queen bed mattress that was not made by pushing 2 twins together- the middle part of the bed made for a less than comfortable sleep. Secondly, the room was a bit hot for sleeping conditions and the thermostat did not work. I was able to open the doors at night for some cool air.
