This place is perfectly sited - in the Casco Viejo, close to all the best bars and restaurants (and 15-min walk from the Guggenheim), yet well insulated from the night-time madness in the street outside. If you arrive by car as we did, you can stash it in the underground car park on the Calle Viuda de Eplaza, a 10-minute level walk away - 20-odd Euros for 3 days, which seemed reasonable. The hotel itself was a lot of fun, as other reviewers have described - full of strange antiques, old furniture and bits and pieces, very stylish. Room, bed and bathroom were comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful, with varying degrees of English. Breakfast was basic, but I don't see any point in moaning about it - you don't have to pay for it if you don't like it, and there are plenty of alternatives outside. There's free wi-fi, but it's pretty patchy and it would be unwise to depend on it. There's excellent free public wi-fi on Plaza Nueva 5 mins away - and you can fill your boots on tapas at the same time.
