“Modern clean hotel with a good rate for solo traveller”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

Great central location. No street noise in room 505 other than faint early morning church bell chiming the time.
Room details starting to show use like a stained lampshade, cigarette burn in carpet of non-smoking room but didn't negatively effect my stay. Room was immaculately clean, especially the bathroom. Loved the long pillows that stretched the width of the bed.
Bathroom freebies stylishly designed.
Receptionists were friendly.
Walk to the airport bus stop is 10 minutes or less. Walk to the train station is 15 to 20 minutes.
Had some problems with water on the final day, it went from cold to very hot multiple times. Then no hot water and it was brown like weak iced tea. But it was an incredibly hot day and it was just as siesta was ending so I suspect everyone was showering in town.
Whilst they had the usual bathroom signage about helping conserve the environment, they changed the bed linen and towels after the second night without any need.
Immediately next door to Zara. Across the street from H&M, Cortefiel.

The Hotel Alfonso X is a modern hotel with the facade of the 19th century palace which stood in its place. The room was very good and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast buffet was quite good for a small hotel. The hotel is located only a block away from the Plaza Mayor and all the tourist attractions are within walking distance of the hotel. I would return to this hotel if I went back to this city.

Modern hotel, situated in the heart of Cdad Real, ideal for shopping or night life. Very modern, well equiped rooms, very pleasant staff, a very comfortable stay. For couples looking for a city break, this is ideal, with good shops just outside the hotel door and nightlife, restuarants only a stones throw away.

Only draw back is taxi's can not come directly to hotel door as it is situated in a pedestian precinct. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. I will return!

  • Liked — Quality of room
  • Disliked — Having to walk to end of street with luggage to meet taxi (40 mters)

Arrived to the hotel, I found that confirmation of ------- (made 2 days in advance) of room available for 2 nights is not right. The hotel didn?t have free room for the first night. The hotel agreed that money has been charged already. They forwarded me and my wife to less quality hotel for 1 night without returning difference of money.I left the complaint to Hotel Alfonso X with regards to the situation. But The hotel hasn?t replied me at all.

Nice hotel in the central pedestrian area of Ciudad Real. Very friendly staff. Modern bedrooms with normal comforts. Nice façade. Even though Ciudad Real is a fairly drab nondescript city, it is worth a visit for the friendliness of its people and its good food. Good starting point for visiting the La Mancha area. Even though 200 km from Madrid, only 45 minutes on the frequent AVE (Spain's high-speed train).
