We had stayed here for a long weekend in 2000 and knew the location was good, so decided to go for it again this time round - a 5-night stay. Superior room (502) was good - small balcony overlooking pedestrian street below (c/Epalza) and also a view of the river and Calatrava bridge. Beds very comfortable. The usual toiletries were provided (no shower cap, though), there was A/C, a flat-screen TV and a safe, and we asked for tea/coffee-making facilities on check-in. A tray with kettle and all the necessary was brought to us 5 mins later. No mini-bar, however, so the milk was powdered creamer. There's a good tapas bar on the corner called Zubizuri ("white bridge"), frequented mainly by Spanish (always a good sign!) and several other bars and restaurants in the back street behind. Decided not to go for the hotel breakfast - they are usually more than we want to eat - and had coffee & croissant/toast & jam at several of these little bars - average price €2.50-3.00 per person. The reception staff were helpful and polite. 20-min taxi ride from airport was €24 and the return trip was €25. A good stay, would definitely recommend the hotel.
