My wife and I were very much looking forward to visiting this hotel in the charming town of Arcos. We arrived in Arcos on a Friday night -- but the hotel was inaccessible. Cars were bumper to bumper in town, there was no place to park, and there was only one way in and out of town. It took us... More

Dear TJ G, Like in most of the Old Towns in Andalucía, street are narrows and parking is limited (information detailed in our website). When you emailed us (10.30 pm, maybe some late) we suggested to you to park in the garage at Los Olivos Hotel (which was not full) or in the underground parking and take a taxi to... More

As all of the previous reviewers have said and as shown in the photos, the views are amazing. We went for the room with a terrace, and we're glad we did, even though it was pretty cloudy and extremely windy. All of the rooms and the roof terrace have the same view, but it was nice to be able to... More

Dear dctraveler052, We are very happy to know your kind words referred to the room and breakfast. Regarding to the toilet tissue, it is the first time a customer presents a complaint about it, however, is to avoid jams in the water. And "the very angry rooster" means the sunrise time :) Thank you for sharing your experience. Sincerely, El... More

I loved this hotel!!! When we arrived we parked at El Convento's sister hotel Los Olivos in the lower part of town then took a taxi to El Convento (6 Euros). We would never have made it with our van in the narrow streets.The rooms were reasonably priced and very clean and the view from the terrace was amazing. We... More

I picked this hotel based on its Tripadvisor reviews. I stayed only one night as it was at the end of my road trip. And yes, there were some spectacular views, visible from all rooms. Some have only a balcony but most have a terrace. Rooms are clean and comfortable and have wifi. Staff are very helpful. The hotel is... More

We were at Arcos in May for two nights. This turned out to be one of our favourite places, both the hotel and town. I for one will come back her one day. Once we settled in we really regretted that we had only two days here. The hotel is "On the ledge" of the cliff and the views are... More

my wife asked. The senora smiled and pulled up the blind to review the massive view of the valley, cliffs and old town. We loved this hotel, right in the middle of Arcos, perfectly placed for exploring the town and eating out. Rooms were clean and comfortable - bathrooms a little dated, but fine. If you are travelling to Arcos... More

This is a wonderful small hotel. We had a room with a terrace which we would highly recommend. The staff couldn't be more helpful. It is a unique location so pay attention to the staff recommendations about parking in Arcos, although it is part of the adventure!

Perched on the cliff with Andalusian countryside views is the reason we chose this hotel. As all other tripadvisor reviewers mentioned about the very narrow one-way to the top of the hill and the limited public parking space around Plaza del Cabido, we contacted the hotel about parking at their sister hotel's parking facility instead. They emailed to us the... More

We enjoyed staying in a former convent. Our private patio had an amazing view. The steps winding to the second floor are narrow so you need strength carring up luggage. The room for three is on the second floor. We ate our meals in the town. Arcos de la Frontera is a unique city to visit.
