"You'll love the lovely front desk staff!!! "
What I loved most about CasaCalma was the many lovely front desk staff people!!! They're young, professional, enthusiastic, congenial, bilingual, sharp, and spirited. The hotel is small, intimate, charming, modern, green, clean, and well-appointed. The decor is delightfully impressive. The bedding seems high quality and comfy. You are buzzed in at the locked front door, and the elevator is pretty quick. The location on the fairly busy small street is very convenient, and good (inexpensive) cabs were easy to catch. I felt safe staying here.
The breakfast is convenient and adequate. Sometimes, evening cookies and brownie bits and water carafes with fruit slices were available. There are good little places to grab a quick bite near the hotel.
For a few days, we had trouble with consistent WiFi, but the staff worked diligently on that until it worked to our satisfaction. The street-side Deluxe Rooms have more light and design ambience, but also more street noise -- versus the inner Superior Rooms. Be careful about water splashing due to the gorgeous Euro bath design sink and shower heads, etc; the floor can get dangerously slippery, particularly if you are elderly. The toilet and bidet room door is a hinged frosted glass 3/4 partition, in case you have elevated privacy requirements.
I considered Four Seasons, which would be more appropriate for the more distinctively discriminating guest with very high-level requirements. I prefer quaint and personable. I loved CasaCalma!!!
