4/10 Fair

Luxury boutique?
Trying to figure out why my review is so different than everyone else’s! We stayed in room 104 maybe we got the bad room in the hotel. My girlfriend and I are modest hotel stayers certainly not bougie type we don’t mind humble places. But this hotel is advertised as higher end which is definitely was not. The bathroom was very dated and poorly designed. Our toilet broke (would not flush) during our stay and there is no maintenance staff to repair it. The front desk employee tried to fix it but was unsuccessful so I had to fix it (somewhat) myself. The angle of the sink made it nearly impossible to wash your hands. Also the wall mounted hotel style hair dryer didn’t work. We asked for a substitute which they didn’t have. Finally, the included breakfast was very weak and the waiter was rude. All of these are would be normal minor issues during a hotel stay but added together along with the lack of attention by the staff encouraged us to end our stay early! We were very happy with the hotel we moved to (Tierra Viva). A much better hotel at a fraction of the price!!

Adequate Stay
Overall stay was adequate. Room wasn’t ready upon arrival. Needed to request heater as room did not have one. Looked like other rooms had. Also, shower water could have been warmer. On up side, breakfast was good (included). Staff was overall friendly.

Great and friendly staff but choose the top floor
A good hotel, staff was great and friendly. However, we were on the ground floor but heard the squeaky noise from above which disrupted our sleep.

I will stay here again and again!
Loved this hotel. Luce was fantastic and made us feel at home and was there whenever we needed her. The location is a dream and walkable to just about anywhere. The courtyard was a nice place to hang out to have coffee in the morning before we got our day started. Everyone was so friendly and we always got a "buenos dias" from staff as well as fellow travelers. I highly recommend El Truco!

Dont stay here, way too noisy
Very noisy place! This hotel has 2 restaurants. One in front and one within the square of the rooms. From hearing the customers to the foot traffic of the employees the noise is Never-ending. Im talking until like 3am. The bed in the room had a big dip in it so, it was uncomfortable. Each toss felt like i was going to roll off. The hot water takes a long time to turn on and is not accessible daily. The office staff is a couple. The man is akward and tries to know your fulll iternary. He wanted to know my exact hours etc. No thanks. Our flight was changed on our last day. I asked to keep our luggage there for the 7 hour difference by booking an additional night. The woman didnt think i could hear the phone conversation and she began to hike up the price seeing that "we could afford it". I planned on giving her a tip regardless, but not then. When i saud no abd questioned the price she called our room over and over again.

Great location but the room was basic. Good value
This hotel is located very close to the main plaza, and is on another smaller plaza with a fountain. The hotel is nice with friendly staff and a delicious breakfast. For the money it is exvellent, especially if you are only going to sleep in the room. My room was very clean too. The only reason it didn't get a 10 is that the sheets are thin, the pillows are small and soft and the room was dark and unpleasant to be in. But for the money, it is very good.

This was such a great find. I paid half compared to the Ramada up the street and it was better. The rooms were clean. The restaurant connected with the hotel has live music and dancing in the evening. Even the breakfast was better. It is in a great location by the plaza and easy pick up for rainbow mountain. Highly recommend!
