It's nothing fancy, but very basic.
Hotel Andino, on a dead-end street near 39th and Avenida
Peru or Cuba (www.hotelandino.
net). Every time I go, I'm charged a different rate, so buyer beware.
A few weeks ago I paid $19 per night with the jubilado discount (mid-week).
Last week I paid $22.50 per night with the mid-week discount.
The regular rate is somewhere between $30 and $45, depending on which
clerk you get :) They never quibble about granting the pensionado
discount but sometimes they "forget" and invoice you the full
amount. I always pay cash there, so easy to catch.
They have hot water showers, an in-house restaurant which is never open
when I'm ready to eat late, free computers in the lobby and free wi-fi
on every floor (works great), cold AC, and small fridge and wall safe in
Sometimes the fridge doesn't cool very much, one time I didn't have any
towels on check-in but they remedied the situation quickly. No free
shampoo, conditioner and other niceties, but for a place to crash I feel
it's a good deal. There's no ice machine but usually they'll fetch a
pitcher of ice from the restaurant if you ask. There's a desk clerk 24
hours a day right in front of the front door, parking is right in front,
and you have to buzz to get inside.
Since it's on a dead-end street, there's very little traffic noise, and
sometimes the window unit AC drowns out all other noises as well :) They
ALWAYS have rooms, so I hope letting this out doesn't screw up the

..... its $45 per night with the discount,
if you are eligible, at the
Marbella. Rooms are small, but clean. Wireless
works in the room, TV, AC, the usual.....a small "basic" hotel,
nothing fancy. In the middle of the bank/hotel district. Good restaurant.
used to stay at the Marbella ALL the time, and then it became impossible
to get a room - it was a good deal while it lasted for us!
thanks for sharing the Andino with us -
