This was our second stay at this hotel and we were once again very happy with it. The hotel is well placed for all the main tourist sites in the old town.
We stayed over a weekend in January, booking a place in the under ground garage for our car at a cost of €16.50 a night. I confirmed this by E mail and asked for bedding without feathers. Not receiving an acknowledgement, I called and my requests were promptly and politely dealt with.
Reception was friendly and helpful, a member of staff meeting us at the entrance to the garage to assist us when we arrived.
We had a room on the fifth floor which was no problem since a number of lifts are available. It was clean, large and well enough decorated. Two twin beds, sufficient wardrobe space and enough space to get around were pluses. Perhaps the business traveller would have liked to have seen more plug sockets for the various items of kit we tend to carry these days. The TV was a fair size and came with access to a number of English language news stations. The addition of coffee and tea making is a plus though more coffee and milk packets would have been useful. The Pick and Easy bar was open throughout but the internal bar area was closed, perhaps for winter. Some of the hotel was also closed off and was obviously being refurbished.
The bathroom was large and quite well appointed with all necessary soaps etc. provided. A large mirror was a plus for the wet shaver. The bath had a shower integrated in it and the shower head was detachable.
Natural light was sufficient in both bedroom and bathroom and as our room overlooked an inner area of the hotel, noise was not a problem.
We did not use the hotel for breakfast, available for €9 plus tax but went to one of the two or three restaurants very close by where coffee and a large tostada could be had for about €2. Care would need to be taken with this if an early breakfast is needed on Sunday as these restaurants don't open until about 9 a.m. then.
Overall, an excellent option for a tourist visit.
