Luckily, I only spent one night in this pension. First, some premises: 1. my review is only based on the particular room I was given (n°2) 2. I am not at all a fussy traveller 3. I am deeply sorry to write a negative review since the owner is Italian but really I can't help it. The room was old,... More

Had a room at the front. Smelt damp. Very very noisy. Went quiet around 1.30. Hot room. No air con and couldn't open windows due to noise. Not great when you have kids. Smallest bathroom I ve ever seen. Clean towels and bedding.

This was the third time I've stayed here and love coming back. Luca, the owner, is so friendly and helpful and always makes us feel welcome. The rooms are very very clean and comfortable and the position in the heart of the medina can't be beaten. Thanks for another great stay and I look forward to returning :))

We stayed here one night after the ferries to morocco were cancelled due to weather but couldnt be more happier it happend. The hospitality of the staff were above and beyond the room was clean and spacious. It was really close to the port and some fantastic tapas restaurant. I would definitely stay here again!

I loved this place. Our room was white-washed with Morrocan style furnishings, clean and well-sized. This pension is well-placed for Tarifa's cafes and bars, and about a 15 min walk to the beaches. There was a great place selling bocadillos (big sandwiches) - perfect for lunch (to eat in or take-away - just round the corner. The only downside with... More

There were 2 couples staying and we were both amazed by our rooms. Basic but clean and substantial in the middle of the old town. One thing to note is that it is next to a church were the bells ring every quarter of an hour all night. As for value for money we feel it cannot be beaten. It... More

We stayed here for two nights on arrival on the ferry from Morocco. The location is great - in the old town just a few hundred yards from the ferry terminal. Restaurants and bars are close by, and the staff is helpful and available when needed. It`s not fancy, but it`s clean and functional. It was easy to catch buses... More

Terrific location within the old city walls of Tarifa. Very quirky building with steep stairs, but full of character. Beds were comfortable. Heating could be improved, but there were extra blankets so not too much of a problem. Clean rooms and Marie at the front desk was very helpful.

Very close to the ferry terminal and heart of the town. A great budget hotel. We didn't mind the stairs going up to the 3rd floor. We had the whole roof terrace to ourselves. Room is great, and shower very good. No breakfast included, but close to many restaurants and grocery stores.

This hotel is in a fairly old building with plenty of character. Unfortunately, this means it lacks a lift and that the stairs are steep and slightly worn. Although our rooms were on the second and third floors, we didn't have problems handling our luggage, because the manager carried most of our bags both when arrived and when we left.... More
