We stayed as a group of cyclists. Hotel staff were very helpful, our rooms all had stupendous views. Breakfast great - enough for cycling! Hotel is right at the top of town and a few minutes walk from the main street and restaurants and bars. Just far enough to be very quiet.

Very friendly staff offering light eats and drinks. Did NOT stay here, but looked very clean and well managed. Parking/access a problem. Should be very good for quiet away from it break. On our future list.

...with great views and better service. Spent two nights here and had a room with a large terrace (Room 4). While the room itself was pretty basic, it was decorated nicely and it was very clean. When you open the curtains, the view from the terrace will take your breath away.....fantastic!!! The staff cannot do enough for you.

Easily the best lodging during out 2 weeks in Spain. Formerly part of the (still active) convent next door, The El Convento is a must. We found it through Rick Steves, and once again he was on the mark. One of the rooms is even named in his honor. Its location is up in Old Town, on the hill. The... More

We walked in and got a very good price for 50€ for a double room (August). Room was fresh and comfortable and has a beautiful view! I liked the mattress, but my partner didn't, they are soft. Bathroom was huge and had a big window, lots of towels and toiltetries, was very clean. The only downside was the AC, it... More

When we boomed we made sure of getting a room with a terrace, as the view is sort of the point of Arcos! The terrace of room 4 was huge, with two loungers, an umbrella, a table and two chairs and still plenty of room for flower filled pots. I dread to think what you would pay for a similar... More

We stayed one night in a superior room with balcony. The room and bath were large, spotless and comfortable. I had emailed ahead to please have a taxi waiting for us at the bus station, and he was there right on time. Good, firm beds and a great night's sleep. Very friendly staff.

We stayed in this beautiful hotel while on a Rick Steves 14 day tour of Spain. Because it was my wife's birthday the day after we arrived our tour guide assigned us to room 6.

El Convento clings to the hill side in the town of Arcos. The hotel is down a narrow, winding street and it's easy to miss. We parked down the hill at Los Olivos, El Convento's sister hotel, and walked up to the old town. I would not recommend trying to drive all the way up.,the roads are too narrow. We... More
