  • Its rooms are a standard, between double rooms for example beds are not the same, this week there was no hot water, the excuses were, or were there many people at the hotel, I think that was not valid that response, second cable was cut not had. In general the hotel is not bad, but you have to improve it, it is saving the central that is.

  • We got forced to this place. We made a reservation via booking for the Amaru, which belongs to the same owner... Upon arrival, they told me that they tried to contact me... (I had no missed call.) To anticipate what happened. The hotel was full, and they offered me to go to the Plaza. It is neglected, frayed and lack of privacy curtains. Low-light, repeated and scarce breakfast...

  • Just tell them. That by "seizing" the silver of new customers. Leave aside those who pay in advance. My opinion. Bad boy
