Casa San Blas Review
This small hotel with a large staff—there's a 2-to-1 staff-to-guest ratio—prides itself on exceptional service and the rooms are quite comfortable, with colonial-style furniture and hardwood floors, but with more modern amenities than this restored 250-year-old house would imply. The top-floor suites and one apartment (perfect for a family of four or five) are similar in style, but larger, with wood-beamed ceilings and great views over the city. The spacious apartment is a great option for those considering a longer stay, and has a fully equipped kitchen. All rooms are decorated with handmade textiles (each with a design reflecting the room's name), which can be purchased if you want a keepsake. The hotel sits a block off the Cuesta San Blas, the "staircase" street leading up from the Plaza de Armas, and could not be more central for sightseeing.
