Convenient location near teatro, only 1 minute walk from arriaga tram stop ( which easily links to Guggenheim and terminus bus station) and less than 5 minte walk to the main train station which is located just across the river.
Stayed in the JC Arriaga suite which unlike the other 4 rooms is smaller and does not ontain a fridge, microwave or a lounge ... But it is also less expensive, which as a single traveller was attractive. In retrospect I would probably opt for greater space and a fridge though.
The room was well designed,with good storage space and a largish user friendly bathroom with shower. Extremely comfortable bed, range of pillows and good quality large bath towels. Good lighting for reading.
The room was cleaned daily, and well maintained
Windows open into central well in appt block. Can be a bit stifling in hot weather without cooling.
There is no-one on site usually outside 11 am -2pm, but if arriving outside these hours someone will meet you
I was met by a lady who had limited English ( but still markedly better than my even more limited Spanish), if there is anything she can't clarify she simply rings the owner who is most helpful. Owner- operator speaks good English and can be easily contacted by phone
