budget hotels near shopping centres


I am looking at going to Maspalamas for a shopping trip.

Does anyone know of a good safe budget hotel for a single woman near the shops/shopping centre. I don't need the beach as i am going only to shop.

any advice would be helpful

You could stay in the south and get a bus to Las Palmas (getting a taxi to El Corte Inglés if you want a big department store) and go to El Muelle, which is a big covered shopping centre by the port. Both El Muelle and ECI don't close during siesta. Many other shops on main streets do. El Muelle has branches of most big Spanish chains plus C&A.

If you're buying cameras etc, choose to buy either from supermarkets like Carrefour, or stores like El Corte Inglés or Maya in Las Palmas (and in Vecindario - on the Avenida de Canarias - and Maya in Vecindario doesn't close at lunchtime either).

If you're in the south, the only place I would personally risk buying from is Visanta, which you can find in the Yumbo in Playa del Inglés or in the Varadero shopping centre in Meloneras (Meloneras starts just beyond the lighthouse at Maspalomas,and there are quite a lot of luxury shops there.

As for cheap hotels, it depends on your budget. And it's worth scouring hotel sites on the net for deals.
