A fantastic option for San José. Enchanting small hotel with stunning views and lovely swimming pool. Whitewash building with pretty restaurant for breakfast and spotless, spacious rooms with air con. The centre of San José is literally a 5-min walk but you feel as if this hotel is a quiet, hideaway where you can't hear a single noise, day or... More

We stayed 9 nights at Hostal el Dorado & can say that it is amazing for 2 stars.  Our room/suite was huge with stunning views over San Jose & out to the mediterranean sea. The room was spotlessly clean with a comfy bed & quality towels/sheets, you also get to chose your pillow type from the pillow menu.  There was... More

Okay, I’ll admit it, we were feeling a bit dubious about staying in a two star hostel. We expected to be far from the town and beach in a small… well, let’s call is a cell. However, we couldn’t have been more wrong. We found this to be a charming place as well as great value for money. We had... More

First time we have stayed in a hostal, and it won't be the last. Had everything we could want, spacious balcony, clean large room, good bathroom facility, excellent friendly staff, swimming pool, fantastic views and charmingly relaxed restaurant. Also excellent value at £60 pounds a night. Easy walk into San Jose. We were on the top floor and it involved... More

Stayed 11 nights and had a wonderful time. Rooms are very clean and we had a balcony with a lovely view across the hills and village. I would say it's in a good loaction, quietly tucked away, yet minutes walk from the main hub. The swimming pool was a nice addition and had fantastic views, great to cool off at... More

Stayed here for 8 nights in August. The room was basic, but very clean and comfortable and a good size. We had a balcony with a great view of the sea and hills around San Jose. The breakfast was OK - usual continental stuff, but perfectly nice - unfortunately let down by really horrible coffee out of a big urn,... More

The perfect place to stay in San Jose, CdG. The girl on reception was soooo helpful: she gave me lots of tourist advice when I was there and was infinitely patient with my rusty Spanish. I had to change my reservation several times and emailed her about a million times and she was never anything short of supersweet. The hotel... More

Nice rooms with excellent views. Although the rooms are basic, they are comfortable and with big balconies. The staff is helpful and nice. Breakfast is nice. Location is excellent. Walking to centre of the town to all restaurants and to the beach. Easy to drive to Cabo de Gata to enjoy all its beauty! Would stay there again.

In addition the people working there were extremy nice and helpful. We can warmly recommend this hotel. We also rented bikes from the hotel. The quality of this bikes are... More
