I made a reservation at 11pm the night before via booking.com and was pleased to see the confirmation at check-in at the Madan came 5pm the next day. The Best Western is not bad value for just a night’s stay - at 1000 pesos including tax and discounted without breakfast - but it’s hard to judge based on a 15-hour stay. For what it’s worth, the Madan is really centrally-located given it’s only a 2-minute walk to the main shopping district in Zona Luz and 5 minutes or so to the bridge and Plaza de Armes.
Everything works well - shower, air-con (though again, hard to tell from remote which button was which), TV, wi-fi in room, front-desk, sockets, fridge, safe. I had room 14 which faced the main street so it could have been noisy but the town itself seems to shut down by about 10pm so it wasn’t a huge problem. If you have to do work there during the day - forget it! The window ought to stay shut all day then.
Plenty of amenities nearby - convenience stores, shops, restaurants, transport.
No lift at the hotel but porters and staff all spoke English. Also, free refill of water on my floor so that was very handy.
Visa accepted. It may be a bit old around the edges - wall paper coming off etc - but overall, recommended. less
