The Suites Bahia is a true traveler's hotel; It's cheap and no-frills. If you are looking for a very basic room in a great location, then I highly recommend the Suites Bahia. If you want a hotel with ammenities, then look elsewhere. We stayed in room 41 on the 4th floor. A few things you should know before you go: first, there is no "kitchenette" in the room like their website states. There is good-sized refrigerator that can hold about a weeks worth of groceries, but that's it. There is a very nice supermarket within walking distance. The mattress is as hard as a rock! If you have back problems or are sensitive to sleeping on hard surfaces, you will be very uncomfortable. The continental breakfast that the hotel advertises is not actually served at the Suites Bahia, but rather at their sister hotel, Casa Mexicana a couple of blocks away. The Casa Mexicana also has a very small pool that Bahia guests can enjoy as well, which is rather nice, but was freezing cold when we were there (Beginning of April). I'm not sure if it was because our room was on the 4th floor or not, but there is hardly any water pressure and the water literally dripped out of the shower head, which made for a long and frustrating shower experience. The hotel interior is dated, but overall the room was very clean and the service was good.
