The hotel is the oldest and as a result has the best location closest to the park. Rooms are basic, bathroom is new, clean an serves the purpose. Disappointing is the bar, smoking is allowed, so not something where you want to have a drink as a non smoker. Also the breakfast was really disappointing, very basic and as mentioned... More

The location is excellent & allows access to the park earlier then everyone and as well at night you have access to a small playing area for the kids, the hotel offers b&b and the restaurants in the hotel are good as well. Rooms & hotel have the old spanish theme.

The location of the hotel is perfect as it leads directly on to the wonderful Europa park. The rooms are very basic and breakfast is very much canteen style. This hotel's biggest asset is by far its location.

Great hotel, great price, perfect location, price could be lower. The hotel site is directly at the park entrance. We had a room for four persons. One double bed and two singles one on top of the other. The room was perfect with the view to the beautiful inner courtyard with the gardens and fountains. If you go to the... More

Beautiful hotel with lovely pool and easy access to other hotels' pools. Main downsides are - Food prices. Hotel restaurants all pretty expensive - Lack of nearby attractions (apart from the fantastic Europa park). We had hoped to see more of the black forest but without a car its a bit of a trek. Tip: the Baden Wurtemmberg train ticket... More

I booked a suite with my little family to enjoy the Europa park. It is not worth the price, I paid 400 € per night. First no fruit basket or water in our suite upon our arrival , no air conditioning in the room but only the living room which made it very unpleasant for my pregnant wife and my... More

I have now stayed in 4 of the Europa Park hotels and must say this is my favorite. We ended up booking a suite on the top floor and it was extremely comfortable, more quiet, convenient and relatively reasonably priced. It was absolutely great for me and my wife but would also be perfect for a family of 4. I... More

Having stayed at the Colleseo before we tried El Andaluz for around the same price. It was quite disappointing to see the rooms were half the size and amenities definitely not as good as The Colleseo. The only upside is that it is directly below the EP express monorail into the park. Features were similarly disappointing in the room, no... More

Our room was awesome!! It was directly in front of the pool and a one minute walk to each restaurant for breakfast and dinner, the hotel was connected to Europa Park for easy access! The room was just like the pictures, the staff was friendly and very helpful even after we accidentally got given someone else's tickets for the park... More

We loved the El Andaluz! The room was very nice, the ratio quality/price excellent. The only question was the quality of breakfast food - quite tasteless, as the rest of the food we ate in Europa Park. Otherwise, we were really happy with the hotel.
