A good quality low budget hotel under Swiss management, TOP location. I didn’t stay here, just took a look at it. Although central (right next to the Terra Linda Resort), depending on the season prices start at 27 USD for a small room without air conditioning but with a fan. Sometimes it’s possible to book an aircon (7 USD for electricity).
The rooms downstairs are large enough and functionally furnished. Not new but clean. Large fridge. Fast internet connection and free of charge, partially only from the room or within the facility. Safe down at the reception.
There are also larger apartments, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to take any pics of these with them all being occupied (book on time). The apartments with one or two bedrooms are also very reasonably priced. Only heard positive comments about this hotel; also applies to the restaurant.
The hotel makes a friendly, serious, safe and reliable impression. It’s not a five star hotel but if you want to stay centrally – thus avoiding the taxi mafia – and are keeping an eye on your budget, but still want a clean and safe place to stay, then this is the place; I stay here as well. Nightlife with bars and discos just round the corner, Playa Sosua (main beach) can be reach on foot within a few minutes. What more do you want? Of course (like just about all over the place) no extra charge for your beauty of the night. This combination of low budget, quality and central must be unique in Sosua.
