We found this hotel via our Rick Steeve's travel book and his review was spot on. The entranceway is inviting, front desk staff and owner are more than helpful, rooms are clean and comfortable (some recently renovated) and many common areas that are nicely decorated and comfortable. Watch for the signs on the main road coming into town and you... More

We stayed at the Alborada for one night before taking a day trip to Tangier. The Alborada was very easy to find with our GPS. When we checked in, the guy at the desk (owner?) was extremely helpful and friendly. He even helped us locate an acceptable parking spot on the street right across from the hostal. The room was...

I'm giving the Hostal Alborada 4 1/2 stars. It makes up for any negatives with its friendliness. It's perfect for what we were looking for; a jumping off point for a trip to Tangier and to check out Tarifa's second main draw, windsurfing and kite sailing. Note that when you come here - it's very windy on the Strait of... More

We booked this hotel for two nights based on the high rating. The first thing we did was cancel our second night. The hotel was difficult to find on a narrow street that was more of an alley. The owner told us it was ok to leave our car on the street but after having gone out for dinner it... More

We arrived inTarifia by ferry, our first time there. The hotel was very easy to find, short walk up from the harbor. Our room was clean, quiet, but on the small side. But for this price and location I'm not complaining, just observing. The front desk was helpful and courteous, offering suggestions for dinner. The walk to the bus station... More

Clean, tidy and close to old town centre and beach. Staff friendly and helpful printed off our boarding passes for free. Good value for money, they do take a charge for the first night when booked by credit card but this was shown on confirmation. Did not mind owing to excellent room rate.

Stayed with a mate for 3 nights in early September. At £60 a night the hotel is excellent value. Rooms were simple and basic but beds were comfy and everything was spotlessly clean. Shower/bathroom was top quality and as good as any 4 star hotel I have stayed in. We even had a small balcony. Staff were a really friendly... More

The hotel is in a comfortable position to reach the center or the beaches (just a few minutes walk). The staff is friendly and very nice, room was small but very clean. The wii-fi is free. The value for money is very convenient. Only drawback for us: the quality of the mattress and the presence of a single pillow "marriage."... More

Family of 4 (kids aged 8 and 11) stayed in one of their Quads for 3 nights. Very clean, quiet and family friendly. We would stay here again. Be aware that the Quads open on the street and not into the hotel like the rest of the rooms. Also, your credit card will be charged for 1 night upon booking... More
