“Very nice small boutique design house / hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The boutique hotel is situated in a historical building straight in the center of Tarifa, in a beautiful house, with a very nicely designed living room downstairs (free to use) and on the first and second floor 5 very good rooms, with the best bed we have had on our holiday!

This hospederia is completely overrated in that it is essentially the muse of a well healed French lady who clearly spends the majority of her time traveling the world whilst her (house / trendy nic-nac storage place) Diez Y Seis is left in the incapable hands of the two clowns loosely known as staff.

Expect the dopy barman / odd job man / general dogs body / parking attendant known as Leonardo to screw everything up from oversleeping when supposedly setting out breakfast and retrieving your hire car from his hidden parking spot (causing you to miss your flight and have to pay considerable costs for a new booking ) to the equally incapable but charming Louisa who lives in another town and is generally nowhere to be seen or heard of when it actually matters. (neither staff can be relied upon to answer their telephones when necessary)

Expect a mediocre serve yourself breakfast (that is, if you can be bothered to find the ingredients; because the two clowns will likely not be around.

Enjoy searching the fridge for your breakfast ingredients and feel free to assemble the coffee machine yourself). Even if you're lucky enough to find a scattering of breakfast ingredients laid out you'll have to juice your own oranges, toast your own bread and serve yourself coffee. Anything as complicated as an omelette is certainly not available.

The themed rooms you'll find are generally poky and packed with little surprises like windows that don't fit, (letting all the noise in from the adjoining late night early morning adjacent seedy little bar outside.) electrical sockets that dont work or a rainfall shower that soaks the entire room once you've used it. The maid service is also sporadic so dont expect your room to be made up and cleaned should you decide to risk staying a second night. As with most third rate hostelries in Spain don't expect the WiFi connection to work either.

Aside from the selection of shortcomings detailed above the property itself is a credit to to the architect, builder/developer/restorer and their beneficiary.

Just a shame it's seriously let down by poor staffing and exorbitant prices for what you actually get. Instead of feeling appreciated as a guest / client you'll be made to feel like you're nothing but a general inconvenience and you'll be over charged for the privilege.

E C, Gerente at Hospederia Diez Y Seis, responded to this review, October 10, 2013
As Manager and proud of my professional and very much appreciated Team, I do wish to come back to you and bring you response to your so detailed diatribe..
I find you are so strangely (really well or so badly !!) informed about the hypothetical owner and his tribulations whom, by the way do not have any interest for future clients.
Deco ? Price ? Service to expect in the hotel ? You made your choice with full knowledge the different booking websites describing so well in detail what you would expect.
You probably confused a 5 rooms Hospederia with a 5 stars hotel !
All the negative comments you made are what makes our difference.
Your opinion is the exception which makes the rule..and good luck to the other accommodation places that will welcome you !!
