Another great stay at Pension La Salve. I like the neighborhood and walking distance ~20 minutes to anywhere I want or need to go. Room and bathroom nice.

Shower glass failed to meet bath. 1cm gap. Might have just been our room (207) but easy to fix.
Cheap and cheerful hotel, easy to find, parking on site, clean and friendly

Not much everything seems pretty good for the price
It was very clean, it was a little hard to find since it's off the path a little. The safe was friendly ( especially the night staff, very helpful) the breakfast was great I am glad it was included

Breakfast was really poor
The garage is good and very spacious! We stayed for just one night and we can say that the room was clean and warm! Wifi ok!

The hotel is very close to the Guggenheim, on the other side of the river. Also close to the old centre. Airport bus nearby.

1) The pension is almost under a bridge, a fact not shown at all in the pictures. 2) We had a problem with the shower, that was broken, there was a leak. After I took a shower, this created a huge flood in the room, with a suitcase and the shoes completely wet. Water under the bed. We asked for a discount for this, but the personnel was not a available for this. 3) Morever the pillows were very hard, almost unusable. I slept without pillow.

location is a bit tricky to find and far from center; trains running nearby make your sleep uncomfortable if you're sensitive
Nice breakfast, friendly staff, WC and shower in the room, free parking nearby

Ensure directions are well understood
Quite central, recommend the bar Alxutar at the bottom of the funicular railway. Excellent real beer!(La Salle). Car parking available but essential to book in advance

the street near by is quite noisy and the equipment of the room are basic
price wise, it is a quite good deal. The people overthere are lovely and really helpfull, also localisation is great

The TV channels here are all in spanish, nothing for the foreigners. I suggest tv5 monde and cnn as additional choice the breakfast is a little limited also

No tea making facilities in room. Pillows not covered by pillow cases. Pillows old and discoloured Wivfi connection poor.
Friendliness of staff, variety of food at breakfast, value for money.

We were charged on our credit card €10 for parking and when we got to the hotel they charged us €10 cash it was only when I got to England and checked my credit card statement that I realised they had charged me twice for parking. Am not happy as do not know how to get the €10 refunded.

Lack of insulation.
If you are looking for one night to stay it is quite reasonable.

The free wi-fi throughout the hotel we were only able to obtain in the corridor outside our room or in the hotel lobby The big No Nos though have to be the railway line adjacent to our sleeping quarters. The constant train noise was exceptionally bad, although it did stop around 10.30 pm, it did recommence around 6.00 a.m. As far as the sound proofing of the rooms, we don’t think they were insulated at all. We could hear every person talking and using the bathroom.
To find this place a satnav is a great help. The underground parking facilities are superb, safe and gives easy access to the hotel lobby. The manager and his wife spoke excellent English, were welcoming, knowledgeable and very helpful and did the best the could with the tools they had. The pension is situated in the university student quarter so don’t expect great views, but for a one night stop over en route to the ferry it’s fine. Our room, 217, was basic in the extreme but clean and tidy. The TV was typically Spanish – yes, everything in Spanish. The bed was comfortable enough and the wardrobe space doubled up as a desktop because there is no table area. Lighting was fine and the bathroom light, airy, modern and the towels were of a reasonable size. The shower was very powerful but the cubicle very small and the doors delicate. The sink took ages to drain. Breakfast was fruit juice, toast and a bit of cold ham and coffee and tea. The plus though is the price and an easy walk to the Guggenheim museum and a reasonable 15 minute stroll to the centre of the old town with plenty of restaurants and shops.

- maybe some noise with train but I resolved with earplug. From 00.00 to 6.30. There is not train.
- Staff is very friendly and helpful - All is very clean - Small breakfast is included. - They have option for carpark

States views of mountains and city. We did have views from our room window but this was via a motorway and well into the distance so disappointed by description on website. Walls paper thin so we heard conversations, tvs, coughs, sneezes, etc so very sleepless nights. Room was close to Reception so we heard every coming and going. Room was also very close to an overhead motorway so this contributed to a lot of noise and building work under the motorway commenced before 8 am.
Friendly, helpful staff. Secure parking. Position was fine for access to the old town and over the river to the Guggenheim museum and Gran Via, etc but up a hill so not for those who consider themselves unfit.
