Ahhh, if I could have stayed here, it would have made my trip even better. But, I just got to meet some of the people who work here and take a tour of this place. My friend is friends with the owner, the woman who also does the artwork that you'll see throughout the building. It's completely amazing...her specialty is busts and other sculpture, mostly, from what I saw, things that include faces:)

Unique Qualities: I don't even know where to begin. The whole place is unique. I'll just list some of the features:

The building is 300 years old
There are exotic birds, mostly parrots everywhere in the courtyard
Fountains, plants, sculptures...
A room with a 9 foot grand Steinway piano.
There's terraces and courtyards, an open air lobby...

You have your choice of rooms: the artists room is $145, The colonial rooms are $195, Vista Rooms are $270 and the Topside Suite is $350. A night. You can understand why I didn't stay here.

Address: 204-206 Norzagaray Street
Comparison: more expensive than average
