“Out of the Ordinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

A very quirky hostal, different to a hostel. The ladies are renovating a very old house in the old town. There are twists and turns on the way to many and individual rooms. We had a room that had a private bathroom. It was lovely, small but lovely.Tthe bathroom was extremely small, even turn sideways while sitting on the toilet, but a gorgeous hotel feeling made up for it. We had some downtime after traveling from Cadiz that morning. When we emerged after 9.00pm the spiral staircase and surrounds were filled with beautiful relaxing music and candle light in all sorts of Moroccan lanterns etc. After staying in many 4 star hotels for weeks I loved the ambience. Reception is closed between 1 and 5 but they can be contacted if necessary. They speak English and it's an easy walk from the bus station. Tarifa had a terrific feel to it. Very relaxed and a calm feeling. Stay longer than 2 days!

If you reserve a room at the Estrella, avoid the one at the ground floor. For 30 euros per person the double looks uncomfortable, doesn't have the door to the bathroom (...) and it's very little. Breakfast is not included. Instead the rooms upstairs are nice, well furnitured and wide.

Stayed June 2012, traveled with friends

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2009

We travelled for two weeks in Spain, in Malaga, Granada, Sevilla and Tarifa. La Estrella de de Tarifa was the most expensive and the poorest hotel we stayed in. The room was very small and the bathroom was so tiny that you couldn't even sit proberly on the toilet seat. The rooms cleanliness didn't meet the price, eg. when we arrived the room floor was full of dark black hair. There wasn't airconditioning so the room was damp all the time.

We looked around and the other hotels seemed to give better value fot your money. I've stayed in much better and cheaper hostels than La Estrella de Tarifa.
