Location is great - above (probably) the best tapas bar in Tarifa. The guest house decor is nice but the sheets & towels desperately need updating ... so thin! The whole place could do with a proper clean & touch up with a paint brush. However, we were there at the end of the season so hopefully they will be... More

Due to a mix up with guesthouse and an online booking agency and in spite of having an email confirmation, we found ourselves without a room for 2 nights. Unfortunately, due to there be no reception on site, we found this out by having a mobile telephone conversation with me standing outside in the street with scooters going past. Not... More

We stayed two nights in two rooms. There is no management on site, but we received instructions on entry to the building before we arrived. The rooms were clean. When we closed the windows and blinds, all the sound from the busy exterior plaza was silenced. Our bed was firm. Just a thin blanket. No English TV channels (we didn't... More

This is a good hostal. For us it was surprisingly good. Very nice decoration, super stylist. Good attention, very clean... On the other hand, there is a lot of humidity in the environment and in the building itself which lead to a wierd smell in the clothes. We had one of the rooms with street view at the first floor....

Booked double room but we were given a single room 201 with a double bed tiny tiny. The owner didn't tell us the scenario. We were promised it was only for one night and we were stuck there for two nights! No apology! When checked out the owner called because we requested she gave us thirty euros discount, which was...

Balenciaga rooms is a charming place, very well located in the center of Tarifa. They have no reception, and no breakfast service, so if you pay a good rate it´s ok, if you don´t it´s better to stay in another hotel that have the same style and more services. In room 101, the bath have a terrible smell in the... More

Have stayed here a few times, have stayed on both floors with and without a terrace and found all rooms nice and good enough for a night or two, I think perhaps if you were to stay longer you'd want larger wardrobes and a mini fridge to store some milk and water. I personally like the door code system and... More

Bit confusing because this hotel is now called Benali Hotel! Loved it! Very clean, enjoyed a comfortable nights sleep despite being located in the middle of the old town. May be different in season, but speak how I find! Looking to book again for a few days in September!

had a lovely time in the Balenciaga rooms when we went to Tarifa for a wedding. Booked room with balcony overlooking the old town. Clean and tidy even if the en-suite was a little bijou. We left our English money hidden under the bed and the owners posted it back to us with no problems at all. Highly recommend. Tarifa... More

Hard to rate this hotel. On the one hand side you are in the right in the middle of the town, very close to the harbor and have all nice restaurants around you. On the other hand this is exactly the problem as there are so many people sitting in the restaurants at night that you hardly find a calm... More
