4/10 Fair

Awful hotel
First of all I'd like to say that the hotel rooms do not look like the did in the pics on expedia. No little table with a flower, no plain white or blue sheets with decorative pillows. The sheets were child themed mismatched and you only get one flat PILLOW. The mattresses were uncomfortable also. The noise level was horrendous because carnival was going on right in front of the hotel tho any time the noise from the streets was loud. Only positive thing I can say as that the front desk lady was very nice and the hotel is convenient to other places in town. Small breakfast cooked by unfriendly ladies also. One towel with one bar of soap. No hand towel or washcloth.

Central hotel. Basic. Lovely hot showers
Very noisy. Guests banging doors Day and night, and shouting. Didn't get a lot of sleep overall. We were there for 2 weeks, did move to a better quieter room. Upper floor rm 11. Definite improvement.

8/10 Very good

Central to everything and good value for money
The hotel is obviously not a 5 star hotel rather than an economic hotel with excellent value for the money and includes free breakfast. There are no elevators but accesible by stairs, The room was clean and had well functioning AC and bathroom with hot water. Fresh towels and cleaning every day.

Great inexpensive hotel
The rooms and bathrooms are small and old. However, the staff keeps them clean. (Besides, I didn't come to Bocas to hangout in my hotel room!) The terrace is fantastic, with views of water in every direction. And the complimentary full breakfast is great. The cook didn't speak much English nor I much Spanish, but I got my breakfast cooked the way I wanted it anyway.
