Spanish speaking staff, who speak very rapidly made being understood, and understanding them, at times created difficulties.
I am really torn between rating this Hotel as Average or Very Good, even though I probably skew towards the Very Good, particularly when they went to the trouble of providing me with what I assume to be one of the best rooms in the hotel. My room was extraordinarily spacious, and came complete with refrigerator, sofa, coffee table, dining table with chairs, bedside lockers on each side of a Queen bed, dressing table and chair, work desk and chair, and television set on a movable stand (not hung from the wall as so often is the case).
It is also very well located to the Bus Terminus and city centre.
All this makes me feel guilty about giving the hotel only an Average” rating. However, there were a few negatives which I thought serious enough to draw back my rating of this hotel. Firstly, it is located on a main road, and without double glazing, even five stories up, it is very noisy. Secondly, hot water appears to be very scarce if at all existent. Thirdly, while it is a nice touch to have a padded toilet seat, it is smaller than the actual pan, so that you and the seat slip quietly into the bowl.
