“Light sleepers need ear plugs”
Reviewed October 18, 2009

Smart modern hotel on main road out of Cadiz. We had a Junior Suite which was spacious , clean and comfortable, but with far too much street noise: whoever designed this new building failed to ensure that the windows were well sound proofed. There were minor problems with the bathroom (poorly draining sink; broken hairdryer). The better news is that frequent (No.1) buses run into the old town and railway station (buy a 10 ticket bonobus in the newspaper kiosk opposite), or you can walk along the seafront (25 mins). There are good seafood restaurants and bars to be found 10 minutes walk away: from the hotel walk to the seafront and turn left. Finally, try a simple breakfast in the splendid Panaderia San Jose - turn right out of the hotel and walk for 30 metres: coffee, toasted rolls with tomato and olive oil & fresh orange juice for 3.50 euros.

Stayed in room 205 for two uncomfortable nights. Our room was not up to four star standards. The air con didnt work, the bathroom was dirty, our room was unkept, dirt marks all over the walls and floor boards were cracked and broken. the two exterior walls of our room over the bed were covered in damp mould. The hotel was very over priced for its standard. When I emailed my complaint I never recieved a reply. We were so outraged by the lack of cleanleness that we refused to eat or drink anything from the hotel so i cant comment on that.
On the positive side Cadiz city is beauitful and well worth a vist, just steer clear of this hotel!

Very good hotel - modern comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean, beds lovely. Good location across the road from playa victoria - take bus 7 from beach front to playa caleta. To get to old town take bus 1 outside hotel - or walk it in about 20 mins. Parking very expensive in hotel and it is a lift which is difficult to get in to and costs about 20 euro per night - when we were leaving we saw a 24 hour car park behind the hotel which was much cheaper.Staff brilliant and free internet in foyer.

My husband and I turned up to this hotel to be told that they had overbooked and that they had to send us to their sister hotel. Im sure their sister hotel was very nice but was further out of town and not convenient for us so we went elsewhere.

The hotel did look nice but book at your own risk.

I stayed at this hotel last week, for a short break to cadiz. I booked my stay here via expedia, for around £50 a night, room only.

This hotel, was very modern and stylish, and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. I only booked for 2 nights through expedia, and wanted to stay for an extra night. The staff here told me to go to reception on the day required for the extra night, where i would recieve a lower rate for the night, as prices are reduced on the same day. The 3rd night, cost 70 euros approx, which is about £42. The rooms were spotless, and the shower was amazing with jacuzzi jets, defintly a 4 star.

The buffet breakfast was very tasty with a large choice. Again the hotel had an offer of buy one get one free on the all you can eat breakfast which was about £10 for 2 people.

The hotel itself is in the new part of cadiz, with the beach literally a 3 mnute walk away. The hotel had many shops and ammenities close by, with lots of banks, restaurants, and carrefour supermarket. The shopping centre, el corte ingles is also just a 10 min walk away. Getting to the old town of cadiz was really easy. To walk takes around 35-40min walk, and walking along the seafront with the views, makes this walk enjoyable. However the number one bus would run every 5-6 minutes outside the hotel and cost 93 cents and would take about ten mins.

All in all, i would defo return to this hotel, its in a really good location and is perfect for either a summer break or a business trip!
