This hotel is perfectly located to enjoy the sights and sounds of Spain. It is right on the river if you want to take a beautiful walk or run around major tourist attractions. It is also within a 10 minute walk of the old square surrounded by great places to shop and eat. The area reminded me a lot of Amsterdam and Copenhagen. The hotel staff speaks English. The breakfast was excellent. When you venture out, it might be important to have an interpreter handy. Most cab drivers do not speak English.
