    that there was no restaurant - had to go across the street for breakfast

    I loved the atmosphere of the hotel. Geordie and Ruth at reception were very helpful - close to the old quarter and restaurants. Huge beds that were very comfy - would recommend room with terrace - lovely to sit out looking over the city

    Situated on main access street to old Arcos, so some traffic noise at night.

    Lady who ran it was extremely helpful and friendly. Free Moroccan Tea at all times in lobby was a very nice touch. Easy access to all of old town Arcos, but Arcos is quite hilly. Parking very convenient.

    Cozy and very clean room with a nice balcony with a view of pueblo blanco. Host was friendly, kind and helpful to us and our particular needs at the time of checking in. Wished we had more time to spend in Arcos to have been able to enjoy the sights and restaurant suggestions she offered.

    The room we had the shower head was broken. We were asked to leave by 10-10:30 because they had the room rented out for the next people at 11:00. The one day of the year they said they have an early checkout. April 1... Arcos Running of the Bulls.

    Bathroom ceiling leaked 2 nights and days. Reception was informed. Lighting very poor in room for reading. Odd to have 1 long bolster pillow for 2 people as only one bed pillow available and bedding was synthetic thin sheets. Least pleasant accommodation in 6 weeks.

    Location was close to major historic sites and parking lot close by. Reception staff helpful.

    Wonderful hotel in the centre of the village. Easy to find and park the car nearby in the street. Single room very comfy with a lovely view. I recommend the Lalola bar up the street for drinks. Front desk lady very kind and helpful.

    The staff smoked in the foyer which meant our room smelt of smoke. There was no hair dryer and no cups for the coffee machine.

    Parking was public, paid, over 100m, and no street parking when we were there. Should be no smoking, but owner was a smoker and smoked in lobby. Old noisy plumbing
