Arrived hotel late no rooms are available and management didn't care about guest's prerequisite. End up in noisy room. Breakfast was not great for the price. Only positive thing was close to metro and to old town to visit Magnificent Guggenheim museum.

The rooms are nice and big. Cool pool outside! It's not too deep but it doesn't have a shallow end either - bring a float. Great bar and good location. Friendly staff all around! Had a nice time here. 10/10 would recommend for a nice relaxing vacation :)

Terrific stay - great location and lovely staff. Food was good and lots of parking. Quite a walk down to the old town but very enjoyable. Nice room and great facilities. Nothing negative to say. Nice view from the bar area.

What a place it's amazing, great hotel with fabulous views close to everything. Drinks prices were good and the food was great, we only stayed two nights but would happily stay again. The pool is cold but nice, the spa is amazing. They even supply towels .

Loved everything about the hotel (lovely new decor).The room was spacious, very clean with lovely bathroom. The breakfast was really nice (fresh orange juice, fresh omelets, very good selection of sweets and the best churros I have ever tried…). The only thing I did not like was pretty noise air condition. The metro station is only 300 m away (but... More

I guess if you are H Inn addict you are use too. In our case €140 only to sleep. If you need to park, pay. If you need the pool, pay. If you want room service, extra cost to bring it to your room... Kind of cun. For that price you have amazing alternatives all included.

A really great find - the Holiday Inn is reasonably priced with great facilities and very attentive staff - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were large, clean and very well equipped (I stayed on level seven, overlooking the front of the hotel and pool - despite the road there was no noise). The outdoor pool was lovely -...

We stay at this hotel regularly as our daughter lives nearby. It is modern, comfortable and stylish, with amazing views over the city from the huge lounges areas. The staff speak good English and are always friendly and professional. It is a little out of the centre but only a short metro ride into the old town.
