    cant think of anything

    The staff ,particularly Andrea and Christina, were hugely informative and extremely helpful in every respect. They couldn't have been any better. The location was perfect for easy access to the old city and to local restaurants. Overall, it was very good value for money.

    We didn’t have enough pillows only one. Also one of our towels were dirty.

    Shower gel was nice, the bed was comfy apart from the pillows. The layout was nice and we had a lovely view. Also the staff were really lovely and spoke English which helped us a lot seeing as we can’t speak any Spanish.

    The only thing to improve is the bed. It wasn’t soft and the pillows were too thin. I couldn’t use my cellphone during the stay due to the poor WiFi connection.

    Great location! Delicious breakfast!

    the bathroom needs some work, the shower leaked and made a puddle around it

    On New Year's Eve, the attendant at the reception, I believe her name was Lucia, was very gracious and let us use the bar to drink a bottle of wine and hang for a little bit even when the bar was closed, that made us feel very welcome.

    Staff was ok but not as helpful as you could expect (didn't even try to arrange an early check-in and said that the time of checkin could not be earlier even without asing what our reservation number/name was to check if the room was occupied or empty already) The staff member we had for breakfast was really nice though View from the room was not so nice, but I guess all street looking rooms were occupied already

    They gave a key to our room to other people who entered while we were there. Then, as the staff blocked the key they gave to the wrong people they also blocked ours and we couldn't get in. Then, they tried to relocate us to another room that smelled heavily of cigarettes. Then, at last, they moved us to a room without wifi. All the staff had no experience and had just started working in the hotel. They tried calling the manager or someone with more authority to no result.

    Location was good. Everything else not.

    The hotel is located on a small but very busy road. Traffic noise continues throughout the night. We were there at the start of a festival, so this might have explained the number of lorries thundering past the hotel in the early hours.

    Staff were friendly.

    I booked this hotel in haste and repented at leisure. I need internet access when traveling to keep up with work. Only booked this hotel for location and because they stated wifi throughout hotel. There was no wifi. The decor is gloomy and depressive..I was positively suicidal by the end of my stay. Extremely overpriced for what it is!

    Very disappointed.

    The hotel is tired and run down. There seems to be more modern rooms available but we got a old one. Bed was majorly old, saggy and uncomfortable. Room smelt like mould and the overal feel was just tired. I booked this hotel based on photos and really don't like the inconsistency of rooms that are available. Some look ultra modern, then others old, that just screams u professionalism and tiredness. I would recommend another hotel to be honest, I was not impressed at all with this hotel at all.
