short stay but just ok

hotel is in great location, close to just about everything but building itself needs TLC...lobby is very well kept, lobby furniture needs upgrading though...elevators very small. Rooms are very small but in ok condition given the age of this property...did notice some maintenance and housekeeping issues in room but nothing worth reporting. Internet is free and connection was reliable, we were able to skype with no problem. Restaurant, food and service were good. Did receive a voucher for breakfast with room per person but given that we were leaving before 6am, we were allowed to use our vouchers to dine in which I think was a great gesture from staff. Overall, hotel is ok for a one or two night stay but needs some attention. One more note; for as tough as San Pedro Sula's reputation is(and you do see alot of seedy characters walking around the park and immediate streets), we felt very secure and safe. Hotel is well garded with polite and armed security.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

If you're looking for honduran artisan work go to the guamilito market. Just ask the staff to get you a cab to take you there and don't take cameras or anything that will attract attention with you..you'll be amazed as to how much artisan stuff there is there and dirt cheap!!!

good choice for a short stay in sps

I stayed here one night before a flight out of san pedro sula. [...] It is located 2 blocks from a handicrafts market and a food market, that had good, cheap honduran food, and is on the city's main square. there is also a very good coffee place, kafe ke around the corner. The hotel's pool was a good place to hang out for a couple of hours to beat the heat. I felt safe in the hotel. The room was large, a little dark and a little dated, but clean and comfortable. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the airport, and about the same from the city's central bus terminal.

Good for short stay

Central location across from Cathedral and central park. Within walking distance of nice regional anthropology museum and crafts market. Nice pool area and modest, but good, restaurant.

They did not honour their price of $29.00. charged $50.00. Who's fault this is I don't know. I will however, never use that hotel again or your services.

Fantastic Fam Reunion

I stayed at the hotel for the beginning and the end of a 3 week vacay. The staff remembered us being that i arrived before my parents, they were great with placing them in the room next to mine. The luggage guy was the sweetest. It was so hot in San Pedro when we arrived and we went all around the Centro to find food not knowing there was a restaurant in the hotel. Let's just say we didnt leave the hotel after that for food. The Italian Spaghetti was the best. Even my neice enjoyed the food and she is a picky eater. All in all the staff is great, food is great. I would definetly recommend. Believe me I stayed here years ago, they've renovated...BIG DIFFERENCE!

hotel stay

It was a nice stay but the only thing aggravating was trying to exchange currency with the hotel cashier. Most of the time she was never there when she was suppose to because she was having personal conversations. Sometimes they didnt have enough money to exchange or would limit how much u can exchange a day.

Good for a business stay

I made my reservation through cheap tickets and was charged the service fee. When I arrived to hotel for check in, they did not have a reservation for me.

Not the best value for your money

The hotel is old and expensive for what they offer. I think I got the last room of the building and I had all air conditioning equipment right next to me. I have no problems to sleep but I'm pretty sure everyone else would. Everything looked old to me and there was a bad smell around one of the beds. The bathroom needs to be renovated. It is right in front of the main plaza but I went out at night and it didn't seem to me safe enough. Breakfast at the restaurant was good although I was surrounded by many city drunks.
