The manager conspired with the receptionist to lie about the bill. We chose the hotel to spend a day catching up on business after a holiday. The wi-fi didn't work. We were drawn into the hotel's endless attempts to rectify the situation which cost us the four hours of our two night stay and proved fruitless. Finally, the receptionist offered... More

We arrived in one evening at just after 11.30pm (early for Spain) and no coffee available, again in the morning if you don't want to have the Breakfast... More

This is a nice hotel in a historic building, with picturesque interiors and views. But the restaurant experience was horrible, although judging by the looks of it, the hotel restaurant could have been the best one in town. Still, the rabo de toro was obviously defrosted, or rather, not defrosted enough for us to find a frozen layer in our... More

That' s a surprisingly nice place to stay.really pleasant place, with a nice view and remarkable facilities (from 17th century). Enjoyable SPA to relax and a good place to stay if you wish to visit wine production " bodegas" in the neighbour cities. Breakfast is good enough .

Bedrooms are, however another story - well the one we had anyway!! Room was small. with a window right in the corner, with a heavy curtain which made it difficult to open and to see... More

The staff, right from the front desk to the breakfast room and cleaning ladies were bright and cherry, helpful and most polite. A very quiet, romantic place to stay. No fear of not sleeping because of parties, etc. the rooms were large and the courtyard area for relaxing was so beautiful. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation!
