Great location,cozy, good price
My wife and I stayed here a total of three nights throughout our trip. We found the service to be very good as well as the value. We would definitely stay here again. It is very well located with proximity to the square and touristy places. A short walk to everything you need. The breakfast is also very good. A great place to stay for one night or five. We will be back.

Good deal
The Hotel Ruinas is centrally located just 3 blocks off of the Plaza de Armas without the uphill or downhill trek that many other places have. The room was clean and the view wasn't bad.

They had hot water and good water pressure. Included was a decent breakfast common to most hotels. The desk personnel speak good English and are happy to help with taxis and directions around town.

For the money spent overall it was a good deal.
