I've taken a long time to think about this review - because of an unpleasant experience at this hotel - which I would otherwise have rated 'very good'. I used to stay at this hotel about 12 or 13 years ago and thought it very modern and far superior to others in the same price bracket. I think it is still good value for money, with standard rooms which are much bigger than one usually finds. Despite what others have written, there is no intrusive noise from the street (on the third floor, facing the row of bars on Reconquista). In fact in 2001 there was a very noisy bus route on this road, now partially pedestrianised.
At the beginning of January, my wife and I had a good day based in the hotel having flown in from the UK overnight and not being able to board our cruise ship until the late afternoon.The hotel was as expected, and the car service from the airport (booked through the hotel) was fine. We returned at the end of the month for a three day stay. All went well (although the breakfast fare was not as good as it could have been, we thought, until our second evening. We came back from a local restaurant to find the communicating doors to the adjoinng room were wide open. The other room was in darkness, but there was a suitcas on the bed. I went downstairs to complain and get the doors properly closed and locked. There was no apology or explanation except that ther had been 'a mistake'. When I got back to the room, the occupant of the other room was there, looking rather surprised - but had he asked for the doors to be opened? We never found out what had happened, but were very pleased indeed that our valuables were locked in the room safe. It left an unpleasant memory of what was otherwise a good holiday.
