The most desirable aspect of this hotel is its good location, which makes it very easy to walk to all the major attractions as well as to the bus stop to the train and bus stations (line 3, I believe.) Otherwise, its charms are limited. It was extremely hot inside when we were there (even when the air outside had somewhat cooled down) and that made it very difficult to sleep. We are European and as a rule prefer not to use air conditioning, but some ventilation (possibly with mosquito protection) would have been highly appreciated. In addition, even on a Monday night it was somewhat noisy with presumably drunk people shouting on the street well into the night, and one guest had a constantly barking dog.
We paid more for the "roof" terrace, which was disappointing as we had to use a door on the side of the room (so the light didn't enter the room and we didn't have any view from the sleeping area - in fact the window was blinded with pieces of fabric) and it only oversaw a wall of the Mezquita anyway. Overall, I would say it is not worth it to pay more for the terrace. Breakfast is not included, so we had breakfast at the nearby bar suggested by the landlord. There, instead of mashed tomatoes for the tostada, we got something obviously made with tomato puree out of a tin. We haven't encountered this anywhere else in Spain - fresh tomatoes are always used.
