This hotel is an unusual mixture of old and modern styles. The many varieties of wood and wooden ornaments are fascinating. The staff match the hotel, from the older, more polite and helpful, to the younger, more casual and inseparable from their personal technology. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms a bit outdated. The restaurant provided top class breakfasts and... More

First and foremost, the location is excellent. The walk from the train station (Franco) wasn't that far and it's in the heart of gothic quarter! The staff was ok and the room was clean. Of course, there aren't high-end fixtures everywhere, but it's a great budget hotel. Hotel Rey Don Jaime has what I look for in a hotel: working... More

It's a cheap and good located hostel. But sleep quality and cleanliness was poor. I do not recommend you to stay here. Avoid. Go find another cheap hostel. Wi-fi is not working in most of the rooms. Only in 1st floor and rooms which are close to elevator. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Very basic property in a central location. Depending on the staff on duty wil depend on whether or not you get friendly help. There is no parking available. You will need to pay for public parking facilities. Trying to get extras, like cots, is a no, no. I would suggest to stay in a more modern hostel at the same... More

Firstly the staff in this hotel are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean but very basic and the bathrooms are small but work well. There is a vending machine for hot and cold drinks in the lobby if you fancy but my advice is get out in the city and explore. There are lots of good restaurants and bars... More

As long as you aren't too fooled by the "hotel" in the title and are expecting a hostel when you turn up, you really shouldn't be dissapointed here. My husband and myself stayed in one of the ensuite double rooms and were really surprised with its quality for the budget price we paid. The room was in keeping with the... More

Yes the location is great and surprisingly not noisy. 10 min walk to marina, beaches. Right in the heart of gothic with hundreds of restuarants and shops. But the room we got was terrible. Our window when opened went into the cleaners store room!! No air conditioning. (A must in spain in summer) No room ventilation and was simply hot... More

I booked 4 nights in a three- bed room only based on cost. Then I came across bad reviews and I regretted my decision. But once we got there, the place was definitely not as bad as all the reviews described. The room was tidy and clean. Sheets and towels were clean and in perfect condition, towels were changed and...

After reading some of the reviews on this place, I was absolutely terrified about what I had let myself in for! Having never stayed in a 2 star hotel before I had no idea what I should expect, but when I got there it really wasn't as bad as some of the other reviews. It is in a fantastic location,... More
