This hotel is very basic. It seems to be an option if you are looking for a sleep-only hotel. Cost is very low and the quality you get is somewhat questionable. We stayed here for 4 nights during an extended holiday where the hotel was fully booked. Staff was gentle and happy to help but they were clearly understaffed (eg.:... More

The site of the hotel shows many nice photos of good accomodations and premises. However, when I got to the hotel, first of all, I received very bad treatment from the recepctionists, who were all rude and totally lost. The elevator is really old and kind of scary. Still, my biggest disappointment was when I got to the bedroom. It... More

The furniture old and the toilet didn´t present a very good appearance…the courtains could not be opened properly, 3 lamps were broken and the mini hygienic shower didn´t run. The key electric system was supposed to turn the devices off, but didn´t work... More

I stayed at the Bristol Castelmar Hotel for 4 nights during a conference that was held at the same location. Upon entering the hotel you are greeted with a large loby, with some interesting decoration and your typical cocktail bar. Checking in to the hotel was done with ease, no complaints there. Opening up my hotel room door, I found... More
