Good hotel, courtyard style, clean but rooms are a bit dated.
Location is good in the centre of town and there is a garage.
Breakfast typically a let down being typically Spanish.
Reception very good and directed us to the restaurant we wanted to eat at.

This is a no nonsense, no frills, three star hotel with a lot going for it. It is clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly. There is a basement garage, and so long as there is a space still free, you may park there at no charge. You are within no more than five minutes walking distance of the main bar/restaurant area of Sanlúcar, and just about everywhere that you will want to go is walkable, so our car stayed in the garage the whole time we were there.
You will find satnav very useful in driving to the door, though there are street signs for the hotel to guide you.
There is a small swimming pool up on the roof.
The downside? There is a dining room but it is only used for tour groups, which seems to be a mainstay of their clientele. Other guests eat breakfast in the bar/cafeteria; this is basic Spanish - juice, coffee and toast (accompanied by butter and jam, by tomato or by cooked ham) but costs only 3.30€ per person. Alternatively, you will find plenty of places nearby to buy breakfast. Right next door to the hotel is the Convent of Madre de Dios; a bell rings out at around seven and again at seven fifteen to call the nuns to prayer. If, like us you have a room on the second floor, which opens onto the roof terrace, this is when you too will wake up. The main problem though is the lack of sound proofing between rooms; the walls are thin.

Room Tip: The second floor (roof terrace) rooms all have outside space with a table and two chairs.

Hola Buenos Dias,
Hotel has an open plan courtyard, three storey accommodation (Moorish Style),
with much decorative tiling and ferns (helechos).
We were given a room on the top floor, which opened directly onto a delightful roof terrace, with a very nice smallish swimming pool right nearby, with tables and chairs outside the room, we could sit outside and watch the sunset while enjoying a Manzanilla after our late afternoon swim. Our double room was extremely spacious, marble floors, two windows and L-shaped with a third bed for a third person if necessary. Free wireless too. TV, works but you won’t have time to use it,
We were happy to discover there was a lift in the hotel and to the underground garage.
A short stroll to the many wonderful outside bars, we had daily breakfast at the bustly
Plaza San Roque,
Los Helechos is a great location if you want to be in the midst of this lively and not so touristy city.
If you like Snails, try Caracoles in abundance.

Unbeknown to us we arrived at the start of the Feria de La Manzanilla (Fair),
which lasts approx . one week, it starts from the old town along a long avenve Alzada Del Ejercito
to the Seafront.
Continuous marquees offering Food and Entertainment leading to the Central Tent with Daily Quality Entertainment. Ladies Day seeing the many beautifully dressed Spanish Ladies with their children.
The Seafront is rather windy being on Atlantic Ocean but a pleasant walk leads you to some good restaurants. Take the ferryacross to Donana, a Natural Park and Nature Reserve.
Excellent base for a trip to Jerez where you can visit Tio Pepe and the
Andalucia Equestre Horse Display.
The Tourist Info in the main square were extremely helpful.
.

We will be back.

My husband and i chose the hotel for our second visit to Sanlucar because we wanted to be in the old town as opposed to the beachfront on out last visit. We were not disappointed. built in Moorish stylt, around courtyards and with much decorative tiling and ferns (helechos), we were given a room on the top floor, which opened directly onto a georgeous roof terrace, with a very nice, smallish swimming pool right nearby. We were happy to discover there is an elevator in the hotel as well. With tables and chairs outside the room we could sit outside and watch the sunset while enjoying a Manzanilla after our late afternoon swim. Our double room was extremely spacious and very basic, marble floors, two windows and L-shaped with a third bed for a third person if necessary. Free wireless too. We did not use the AC or the TV, so cannot rate these. The hotel bar has the charm of a cafeteria, so we preferred the many wonderful outside bars just down the street. we also had breakgast at the plaza with the fountain, always lots to watch. Los Helechos has a great location if you want to be in the midst of this lively and not so touristy city. We love it here and would definitely return. The staff at the reception did not Speak English, so i struggled through with my elementary Spanish, but we managed! It seems that most of the tourists there in September were Spanish.

A very attractive hotel built traditionally around a central courtyard with a fountain. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly. It was ideally situated just a few minutes from the main square.

Room Tip: I think higher floors are quieter.

Rooms set around an attractive courtyard. Rooms comfortable and adequate but no hairdryers. Staff were friendly and helpful and there was free parking.

Room Tip: Best rooms overlook the courtyard.
