I spent five days at Tanguero. As a budget-conscious business traveler, I was attracted by reviews of various Expedia-related customers. On the plus side, the staff is great. Most speak at least some English and didn't laugh at my marginal Spanish 'skills.' Very personable and helpful with questions regarding the city, restaurant suggestions and even finding a dry cleaner (since the hotel does not offer a clothes iron/board, which was surprising and disappointing). Even though the hotel is somewhat old, there was ample hot water and I mean hot! Room service was efficient and unobtrusive. The car arranged for my trip back to the airport arrived exactly on time. Clearly, Tanguero commands the respect of local businesses. Breakfast and Internet access were free but marginal. At times, it was difficult to get a consistent network signal, but you get what you pay for, eh? On the downside, the walls were fairly thin. I could hear people all over the floor, but then, they weren't exactly trying to be quiet. The room got quite warm at night with the heat off, even though it was the beginning of winter. I tried to run the central fan to cool down but it was like sitting next to a small jet engine (though it definitely drowned out the neighbor noise!). All in all, if you are on a budget, Tanguero is a pretty good deal despite its limitations. Probably more 3 1/2 stars than four. If they could fix the volume of the ventilation system, I would consider staying there again.
