“Veracruz Plaza Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We've stopped off here en-route to Portugal about 5 or 6 times now.

The rooms are excellent, there is secure underground parking, and it's quite easy to get to from Autoroute, though it was tricky the first time, and we needed our Satnav guidance to find it.

We've never eaten there apart from snacks (tortilla & nuts in bar), as we always want to eat early by Spanish standards. It's a short walk into town center & many bars with Tapas menus.

It's a great value overnight stay, with free wi-fi also.

Veracruz Plaza offers good value for those who are travelling down through Spain to Andalucia and are wanting a stop off, or those who are touring the wine regions and need somewhere to relax. This is a four star hotel with less than four star prices. It serves good modern food, the rooms are spacious - with bath. It only starts to get a little costly if you want the spa treatments. Personally, tonight I am off to the Penalty Bar in town to watch Barcelona beat Real Zaragoza, followed by a meal somewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking

Advantages:
1) Great hotel on your way to and from Madrid.
2) Great little town - just 5 min. walk from main plaza and tapas restaurants.
3) Quite New and Modern

Disadvantages:
1) Very bad reception service - when we wanted to check upgrading our rooms - she said there wasn't any employee to show us the rooms...
2) Spa facilities - 13 Euro per hour - quite expensive
3) Cleaning needs to improve

Very good, new, hotel, situated near the main square in Valdepenas. Good, clean rooms and the staff is very friendly. Parking for 8 euro's per day under the hotel. Great value. On saturdays though we paid 30 euro's more for the same room.

This is a very good hotel but it is badly let down by its service. If they are going to run a hotel of this sort of standard then the service needs to match it.

Location
The hotel is in an excellent location - a short walk takes you right into the main square, which is fabulous. As you enter the square (from the hotel side by the church) walk diagonally across it and in the opposite corner you'll find the Malaga Bank. There's a cashpoint there, which is handy, and just opposite the bank is a wonderful restaurant with a tapas bar downstairs - you'll see the door in the wall opposite you if you stand by the cashpoint. Don't bother with the grubby bar that's on the square next to it. The hotel will direct you to another restaurant, which is also very good, but a much further walk. They direct you to the other restaurant because that's the one they own!

Some people have commented on how difficult this hotel is to find. The trick is (if coming from the north on the main road) to avoid the first turn off to Valdepenas and take the second. This will put you directly onto Calle Torrecillas. And you just follow this road going East until you reach a very obvious T junction. The hotel is just at the T junction. And a major plus point for the hotel is that there is plenty of parking, for which a small fee is charged.

Room
We had a suite. And it was wonderful in most respects. The furniture and space were fantastic. The service that went with it was fairly poor. Be warned, there is no turn-down service and only tiny amounts of soap and shampoo provided. So, if you shower on your first night you'll have wet towels and no soap or shampoo the following morning.

They also need a thermostatic valve in the shower; the water temperature varies from scalding to freezing at random intervals.

Other gripes
The woman on reception in the mornings was probably one of the most grumpy receptionists I've come across (the man who greeted us in the afternoon was most welcoming, by contrast). The breakfast is also an uninspiring buffet affair.

I used mapquest to map directions to this location and as I found out their directions were way off . No signs in the town as to the hotels location so it took over an hour of hit and miss driving to locate it . They do have a parking garage - 10 Euros per night . The hotel staff was a bit cold - but that's OK I'm not going to marry them . Room was very clean and nice sized , free wi-fi . I would probably not stay again unless I was arriving by train .

Stayed here for 4 days with my daughter in February 2008.

Excellent hotel very well situated in the area. Excellent reception staff although English is very limited.

Very clean and well presented with very high class furniture and decoration and the bathroom was particularly special.

Lovely bar area with a relaxing atmosphere.

  • Liked — Stylish accommodation at a reasonable price
