Hotel Antartida is far from being a luxury establishment and focuses more on budget-friendly accommodations. While the low prices are quite appealing to visitors, a few found the overall atmosphere quite disappointing, especially the small size of the rooms.
We feel that the hotel’s location is the best thing about this establishment. Although the rooms are small, you won’t be spending much time in them as the bustling streets will easily draw you outside. Overall, we give it 3.5 out of 5 stars for its cozy appeal, strategic location, and delicious continental breakfast menu.
