We decided to choose the Barcelo again over the Ibis. The Ibis is nearer the old town but the Barcelo is so close to transportation links that this was the deciding factor. We arrived from Granada by coach and the coach station is opposite the train station, where the Barcelo is sited. It also made it easier for us to catch the train to the airport for our homeward journey. However, it isn't just convenient but it is a well built, comfortable and funky hotel.
We had room 612 which is at the front and affords a sea glimpse, if not a sea view. We felt that the breakfast had improved since our last visit two years ago (apart from the Spanish Omelette which was very salty both days I tried it).
The old town is a good 15 minute walk but you can catch a bus. So I think on balance we made a good choice; convenience, comfort and a touch of luxury.
