There are 2 massive pluses - the kitchette and the very large shower. The parking is very useful and the location is very good for shopping and eating. There is small but petty charge for the safe but the internet is free. Breakfast is good but get up early or late when it is windy Otherwise you will end up... More

Very happy with the hotel, just thought I'd add something few reviewers have mentioned: The reception bar is a hidden gem. The signature cocktails are excellent, and the mini tapas might very well be the best food you'll eat while in PdI. I sat down for a cocktail and a tapa or two almost every afternoon, but never saw anyone... More
