Great location near beach and city center.

Poor 2.0
No security, they steal
My coworker was scheduled to stay on business purposes from the 20th to the 27th of August and at the very first night someone break into her room and steal her purse, wallet and jewelry while she was inside the bedroom sleeping around 1 am!!! Next day instead of work, she needed it to go to the police hopping to have the Hotel's support, but this was EXTREMELY poor, no video recording was provided or any additional information. We go every month for business purposes and we are VERY careful when choosing a Hotel. Koox, La Pasion, 770 or One are affordable and good location hotels where we have been stayed for the same price. DON'T STAY at this one, specially if you are bringing nice stuff, most likely you will be stripped of them as soon as the thieves are aware.
