I've stayed here for an overnight between flights. I've informed the hotel staff about my rather late arrival and the pickup from the airport was nicely organized. The receptionist was really friendly, spoke english very well (somewhat big deal in spain) and arranged everything for me. But there are things which were not so amazing... the room itself was little bit dark and there was rather strong cigarette smoke smell in the room (as a non-smoker, I really pay attention to that). Otherwise it was all right.
What they don't tell you, when you're booking the room, is that they serve breakfast since 7a.m. I've paid in advance, but it was discounted from my account later. But still, I was counting on that little bit. But the biggest flaw was the transport to the airport. They have a shuttle, but in the morning, it goes every hour, not according your needs. Well, that's annoying, but I could have lived with that. Then I was waiting outside, 6a.m. and since my intercontinental flight was leaving at 7:30, I really didn't appreciate shuttle being late. I waited ten minutes and then gave up and shared a taxi with a family which went the same direction as I did (for whatever reason, they had taxi arranged and didn't know about any shuttle at 6a.m.) I take it as a good luck, since I have no idea if the shuttle turned up and when. And since there's nobody at the reception desk in the morning, you're left little bit on your own. I understand spanish relaxed approach to a lot of things and I don't mind it, but when it comes to airports and eventual missing planes, I'd appreciate little punctuality...
