Very friendly staff on reception and throughout the hotel. We did see people given a drink on arrival but we were not offered one? Breakfast was delicious with a good assortment of choices. the prices at the bar were very reasonable compared to that on the square. The hotel is about 15 mins from the square and the airport buses. Brilliant location!
The room was no bigger than a postage stamp with very little space around the bed. The small windows looked into the rooms opposite so we kept the curtains closed. We were not able to tell what sort of day it was until we got out of the room as you couldn't see the sky due to the closeness of the opposite rooms. Not really what you want when in Spain.
The bed was positioned within a foot of the bathroom door which had a semi frosted sliding door. The toilet was to the right as you went in, right up against the door meaning you could be seen clearly sat on the loo. Not a good look when your partner is lying in bed. Lovely bathroom furniture but the window was in the shower and couldn't be opened properly because of the shower head. Very badly designed.
The room was modern but very basic with no mirror or drawers to put anything and a very small wardrobe.
The hotel was very clean and so were the rooms
We had a good few days but spent very little time in the hotel as it wasn't somewhere we wanted to be lacking comfort, natural light and the glass door was definitely a no no.
My son and partner stayed at the same hotel in December and had a lovely big room but still with the glass bathroom door (however they neglected to tell us that bit lol) Obviously not all the rooms are of the same size and quality.
I wouldn't stay there again even though it is a very nice hotel. the room really let it down.
