“lonely planet was bang on!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

lovely couple running this place, friendly, helpful, adorable! the place is updated, clean and a wonderful change from a hotel chain. the breakfast in the morning was the highlight, she served us with pleasure and it was a pleasure to receive! it was a bit overpriced in my opinion, over 100 euros for one night sleep and two continental breakfasts but at least we can see where it's going.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

I went there because the good reviews, but I was surprise of how good this place is. I went there with my husband and another couple without reservation. The lady gave us the suites at a discounted rate because they were empty. She is a sweet, helpful lady, giving us lots of good advise, including which restaurants people like more. The rooms were meticulously clean, beautiful, comfortable and the attic have a fantastic view.

The breakfast was great, and served in a cozy room.

The town is gorgeous, but be prepared to go up and down steep streets.

I would like to reiterate what has been said by previous reviewers. I recently stayed for 4 nights during which I used the hotel as a base for day trips to Seville and throughout Cadiz province. The hotel is well located close to the old town. The room we stayed in was a good size and both clean and comfortable. The fresh juice, coffee and tostadas for breakfast was a great way to start the day. The couple that run the hotel are very helpful and hospitable. I felt genuinely sad when it came time to leave!

As someone else has also mentioned, the Italian restaurant in the old town (run by a native Sicilian) was probably the best of the dinners that we had in Arcos.

We arrived on Sunday of carnival , so the old town was packed with cars, revellers, police controlling the traffic etc. The hotel is in the high street and the parking non-existent on that day. Monsieur promptly took charge of our car. We were greeted warmly by the couple in French,a bonus for me, as I do not speak Spanish. We loved the residence, the hospitality of the owners and found it difficult to leave next day.
If we return to Arcos we will stay with them again, we highly recommend it to trip advisor customers.
In the evening we had dinner in an Italian restaurant nearby, where food was good, the service exemplary, again to recommend.

I was so glad I went with this hotel after reading about the lovely couple who run it! And the location was perfect at the base of Old Town. The whiskered Senor helped us up the flight of stairs with our (heavy) suitcases; we were affected by not having an elevator. The sweet Senora was friendly and hospitable. The included Continental breakfast was ample and served right off the kitchen. Our room was quiet and comfortable; the jacuzzi tub was wonderful. Within 24 hours, we were taking pictures together, sharing pictures of our bambinos, and giving hugs good-bye. The language barrier was never a problem; I loved being here and hope to return; it a lovely village to wander! And I felt like I was welcomed into someone's home by this beloved pair.

This is a lovely establishment run by a caring and gracious couple. What they lack in English language skills, they make up for in charm. They had no trouble understanding what we needed - for example a scale to weigh our luggage before boarding a Ryanair flight. The breakfast was very good and they let us park our car in front of the hotel in their loading zone. Our room was large and impeccable and the location was great - right in the town center with several restaurants and bars nearby. On both evenings out for dinner we met friendly British people who have bought homes in Arcos.
