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.
