No está tan cerca de la terminal como decía la página, aunque sí estaba muy cerca del centro histórico. Las camas súper ricas y las piezas amplias. Respecto del personal el chico que atendía era súper amable, pero había dos chicas que no eran muy amables y ayudaban solo en lo mínimo. La cocina podría estar más limpia. El desayuno muy rico, podría ser más grande el comedor.
