Expert Review

An Indonesian theme runs throughout this century-old Spanish colonial home in the trendy district of El Getsemaní. There are just three suites - each decorated in Caribbean, Indonesian, or African styles, many with hand-woven rugs and wooden Buddha masks. Modern luxuries typical in much pricier hotels like BOSE Wave radios, complimentary laptops, plasma TVs, and a rooftop pool make the moderate price here feel like a steal. If the guests in the two other rooms make you feel claustrophobic, the house can be rented out in its entirety with a full staff. Chévere.
