Good hotel, courtyard style, clean but rooms are a bit dated. Location is good in the centre of town and there is a garage. Breakfast typically a let down being typically Spanish. Reception very good and directed us to the restaurant we wanted to eat at.

This is a no nonsense, no frills, three star hotel with a lot going for it. It is clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly. There is a basement garage, and so long as there is a space still free, you may park there at no charge. You are within no more than five minutes walking distance of the... More

We were given a room on the top floor, which opened directly onto a delightful roof terrace, with a very nice smallish swimming pool right nearby, with tables and chairs outside the room, we could sit outside and watch...

A very attractive hotel built traditionally around a central courtyard with a fountain. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly. It was ideally situated just a few minutes from the main square.

Rooms set around an attractive courtyard. Rooms comfortable and adequate but no hairdryers. Staff were friendly and helpful and there was free parking.

The hotel is situated in a central Sanlucar, the rooms are clean - but smelled damp and musty - the heating didn't work very well. The decor in the room was dated and shabby, and the bath and shower fittings rusty. It was very noisy in the early morning, not street noise but from inside the hotel itself. Reception, from... More

SInce I was traveling solo, depending on arriving via bus and had a large piece of luggage I wanted a hotel that was in the lower town. This hotel is well located near the main square, Plaza Cabildo, and only about a 10 minute walk from the bus station. I arrived before noon and my room was not ready -... More

Staff very nice, location good, facilities and room fine. Los Helechos would have been good value except for the fact that you couldn't breathe through the cigarette smoke. The night we were there, a Spanish tourist group set up camp outside our door at 3 in the morning -- drinking and talking loudly (and did I mention the smoke?). We... More

There are three 'hotels de charme' in Sanlucar: Los Helechos, the Posado de Palacio and the Duques de Medina Sidonia. All are elegant and good value. I looked at them all and decided on Los Helechos which, at €71 a night for a double room plus free garage, was the best value. It's very attractive with the rooms on three... More
