This hotel is on the edge of the cliff where you can see the bridge from your windows and the valley below. Pictures from our room were spectacular. We splurged on the junior sweet which was indeed spacious, with a separate large sitting room and balcony. We were in the granada room on the upper floor. The furnishings are eclectic but fun (there is a gold naked chrub lamp in the bathroom and a giant four poster bed for example).
The breakfast was downstairs int eh restaurant and had a wonder ful view as well. It was a nice buffett with fresh fruit salad, fresh sqeezed orange juice and eggs cooked anyway you want on demand. It has the usual assortment of hams, breads, cheeses and pasties as well. They will make coffee drinks for you. The breakfast was included with our room and was worth it.
The hotel does have parking for 16 euros. When you arrive, go about 40 feet past the hotel and look on the left wall of the street fo rthe Hotel Monteliro sign where you pull in an unload your stuff and bring it down the 40 street to the hotel door. They will then valet park your car for you. The street is too narrow to park in front for long, so just pull up to the space on the opposite wall (just past the small pastry shop maybe 30-40 ft up the street on the left - the hotel entrance is on the right just below. )
THe staff is pleasant and will answer the questions asked. The woman on during the day was a little more reserved than the one at night but both were helpful.
The location is pretty much one or two blocks from the sights in town - the bridge, wine museum, shops, church and mosque are one or two winding streets away on foot. THe partk is two- 3 blocks over the bridge and along the gorge - where you can get a horse and carriage tour of the old town for a decent price. It is a nice was to get oriented to the town. At the top of the street the hotel is located on, on the right is a small viewpoint park and a restaurant next store. Don't miss the view from the gardens of the restaurant - which includes a moorish arch you can see the white town through which is perfect for pictures. The food at that restuarant is quite good and worth checking out - they have a deck on the edge of the gorge outside) Just head right up the street the hotel is located on and go to the end and you will see the park and restaurante, which looks like a house).
Overall an excellent hotel for a small town like this and a better value than the state run parador with a mirror view.
