Hard to rate this hotel. On the one hand side you are in the right in the middle of the town, very close to the harbor and have all nice restaurants around you. On the other hand this is exactly the problem as there are so many people sitting in the restaurants at night that you hardly find a calm minute before 2 am in the morning. We couldn’t sleep with closed windows as the room itself was smelling pretty moldly which was hard to bear for us.
Beside that our room had an ok size, was equipped with TV, Wifi was excellent and bed and shower were also great.
One thing we absolutely didn’t like was the fact that the hotel has no reception. After booking the room in the internet you’ll receive an Email with a PIN Code to access the hotel. Don’t miss that otherwise you will be trapped! Inside the hotel you get your room key from the cleaning staff and also pay to them. The thing is that these people are only available between 10-14.00 . We wanted to leave early in the morning to Gibraltar and couldn’t as we had to wait for the staff for paying our room…pretty annoying to us. There is only a Spanish telephone number available but who knows how much $$$ you spend for that telephone call.
Keep in mind that parking is for free near the seaside, we didn’t have a problem to find a spot for our car there.
