First let me be clear that you cannot drive to this hotel! We tried, ended up parking in the middle of the street while one person ran the suitcases down the alley, then moved the rental car to a parking garage several blocks away. The location is very good - in the old part of the city with great restaurants, tapas bars just a half block away, and the cathedral and Alcazar just a block away. The alley is difficult to find, but is quiet. Our room was very small - barely enough room for two twin beds and two small night stands. There was an odd little musty smelling closet that we were able to put the suitcases in and a door to a little tiny outside courtyard. The bathroom was ridiculously small. The shower was about 2-1/2 feet square with no shelves and was made worse by the installation of some snazzy multi-spray system that stuck 4" into the shower! There was a large sink which was also ridiculous because you basically had to have the shower door open to lean over to wash your face because there was only about a foot between the shower and the sink. So for the price, I probably wouldn't stay there again. We were in the main floor, which didn't have the stairs problem, but we could hear people come in the lobby during the night. Because this is an old place, the ceilings were about 10 feet high, and the windows were very well made, which made it at least interesting. It was clean, great location and the beds were comfortable, so it met our basic criteria!
