A charming Moorish-style hotel somewhat outside the city center, and thus a 20-25 minute walk to the major sites. But the Macarena was an interesting kind of bohemian neighborhood that at first sight looked somewhat shabby (but see great flea market, beautiful churches, the Alameda). The room was small, but stylish and for the most part comfortable, although lacking in adequate storage for your things—it could use a small chest of drawers or additional shelving. Bathroom was huge with 2 sinks and counter space. A shower curtain would be helpful, as the shower water did go all over the place. But we can attest to what others have said, the staff (all truly English-speaking, which wasn’t that common on our trip) were incredibly helpful and friendly and went out of their way for us. Breakfast was ok, mostly buffet, a reasonable spread: fresh squeezed orange juice was a highlight. And you could order eggs, but sometimes the breakfast staff’s English was pretty minimal. If you don't mind a daily walk (or bus ride) and you don't need a siesta in between, it's quite nice.
