....but dont expect anything more.
We stayed in the hotel for one night on our way to Gibraltar. We arrived late afternoon and we were greated by the receptionist who was very friendly and helpful and explained our stay in detail.
The hotel is bang on in the middle of everything.
Great centre location
Air con in room
5 min walk from Torremolinos train station
5-10 mins walk to gay nightlife
5 mins walk to restaurants and tavernas
Above shopping area(on negatives as well)
As it was above all the shops we were awake early in the morning around 8-9am from all the shops opening and we woke up at around 4-5 am when people (who obviously had a drink or two) were returning to their hotels.
Very basic breakfast, continental with ham,cheese, bread, immitation cereals and an orange juice that would never know what a fresh orange looks like. It was from a machine and it was more like an orange squash.As i have worked in the hotel industry before i know that a hotel that respects itself should have at least an orange juice from a carton if not fresh. Its those little things that make breakfast the best meal of the day.
Decor dated in both the rooms and breakfast room.
One socket (i know its a minor thing to look at but in our days with all the gudgets and phones you need more than one plug)
Plastic cups in bathroom for guests to drink water etc. Its a no no for me.
Cigarette buds outside the window clearly missed by the housekeepers.
Beds clean but matresses a bit hard.
I give 3 for the service as the receptionist and the breakfast lady were very polite and friendly.
Value 4 as it is in a great location and is cheap.
Overall i couldnt be really harsh with the hotel as the location is excellent if thats what you are looking for but i wouldnt stay for more than a weekend.
