"Perfect location and very friendly and helpful staff. The room was not too noisy and nicely spacious. Breakfast was good, but if you are a hungry person any extra portion of bread, jam, etc is charged!"

Liked: Location was really Good for shopping. Clean rooms, Nice view over the city

Disliked: We had to pay a higher price than what it said on the websight. Staff not very helpful. We were leaving early one day and the breakfast was supposed to open just in time for us to grab something to eat. 20 minutes later it still hadn't opened so we had to go out and buy breakfast.

08 July 2012 Christoph would recommend this property

Liked: The room was big, clean and the view from the third floor was nice. Showers were great (hot and strong).

Disliked: When we arrived the staff didn't acknowledge the 10% booking fee and asked for the full price. Because we stayed 3 nights we haggled them down a bit but not to the correct price. The woman told us that they often have problems but some travellers still pay the full price. We informed Hostelbookers and were called by the owner afterwards. He then used a different exchange rate so he arrived at the correct room rate. The hotel is very nice, but also more expensive than other places in the area. We certainly wouldn't stay there again because of the staff but have to admit that room and view were very nice. Internet on the 3rd floor was not very good.

Liked: Great location, clean and quiet if that's what you're looking for! Helpful staff and secure rooms. We got a twin room with own bathroom and it had cable TV which was great for chilling out!

Disliked: The room was quite cold so we needed blankets all the time but it wasn't long before warming up. Asked for the room to be cleaned after two days (as we didn't need if cleaned the first day) and they only changed the bed covers. The floor needed to be swept and the toilet roll wasn't replaced which meant we had to go looking for more.

Liked: Clean,Cable TV, nice ancillary staff

Disliked: The Manager, basically disregards your Hostelbookers booking and uses an inflated exchange rate so you pay the same as someone who just walked in reducing rate by less than a dollar (80cents). They won't cater for breakfast earlier than 7.30am or reduce price for not having breakfast.

Liked: Great location, very clean & secure.Good supply of hot water !!

Disliked: Used the hotel as a base over several weeks - in and out trekking etc and had no problems. Lovely , helpful staff, safe place to leave gear whilst out trekking etc. BUT - we had two travelling companions who were treated really poorly. Both had stayed several nights and had booked in after tekking in the mountains. Both were turned away despite bookings - the hotel had simply got a better offer and filled the room regardless. Management were then very unhelpful - offering no alternatives ( they could have been offered a double room in lieu of a single - they were available, but neither were), staff when challenged became rather aggressive & unfriendly.

Liked: Hotel Fuentes sijaitsi erinomaisella paikalla La Pazin keskustassa. Kaupungin hälyäänet eivät kuitenkaan kantautuneet huoneeseen, mikä takasi yörauhan. Hotelli tarjosi neljä tietokonetta asiakkaidensa käyttöön maksutta. Kuitenkin olisi ollut hyvä , jos huoneissa olisi ollut langallinen internetyhteys, koska koneet olivat ruuhkaisia. Hotellin henkilökunta oli ystävällinen ja avulias.

Liked: All the advantages of a hotel for a reasonable price and a great location. Right next to the Witchcraft Market, near the San Francisco Church. The hotel can also arrange bus tickets which is very convenient as apparently one of the terminals is in a rough area. All good!

Liked: The sauna was broken.The front desk was left alone many times so that anybody can grab any of the room keys. Very bad security.Very little hot water.They didn't replace the towels when they cleaned the room.The walls are very thin. When you are in teh toilet you can hear the guy next door doing his business .Location is perfect, which maked up for the above, just about.

Disliked: Ian left no negative feedback.
