There was a funny smell of rotten garbage in the foyer. The room was poorly maintained, worn out. Staff seemed uninterested. The bar/cafe/lounge/terrace was always closed - no service. The whole experience left me thinking 'where is the love'?!

This was the most expensive hotel in our trip from UK to Algarve , and I had even upgraded to a room with a terrace for an extra €10. It was very busy late Saturday afternoon, as there appeared to be some meetings and lunch parties. The room was large and positioned at the far end of a long corridor... More

Stood in this hotel for 4 nights to ski in lá covatilla. It's a 20 minutes driving. For a 4* hotel i think the breakfast should be better. Other then that, it was just perfect.

The day before the start of Madrid Lisboa by mtb I checked in here. The hotel is situated in a quiet area of Madrid, clean and the room was ok. The price is reasonable for what they offer and nearby there are some good restaurants and cosy cafe`s.

We stayed in this hotel for a week whilst on an activity break in the region. Firstly the hotel is excellent value (booked online through a booking site). We paid E41 for a double room with breakfast. The location is good - adjacent to the main road, but with excellent views. There isoff street parking and wifi at no cost.... More

This is a truly good value for money hotel. I had to say I doubted about giving it top 5 marks, because the restaurant could be immensely improved. Breakfast in particular is just poor. However, after meditating about this, I felt the hotel deserves a good rating because the rooms are excellent and the views breath-taking (get river side rooms).... More
