With a little bit of a mountain chalet feel—you can thank the Swiss owners for that—this often overlooked small hotel on a quiet street at the top of San Blas has plenty of perks. The rooftop terrace, great for trading travel tales, has superb views, while the large glass-covered atrium over the central courtyard helps bring about a communal air usually found in hostels. The price is a bit high for the location and the no-frills decor, though the high-ceilinged first-floor rooms and higher-floor rooms with private balconies make up for it. Prices drop considerably during the low season.
