Arriaga Suites are in a perfect location in the old town surrounded by shops, cafes and bars. As they have no reception, we texted them at the airport to say we had arrived so they could meet us there. A taxi costs 25 EUR, on the return we took a tram (1.40 EUR each) to the bus terminal, and the Airport bus (1.30 EUR each - runs every 30 mins). The signage outside is very small, so we may have missed it if we hadn't got the taxi. The suites are within an apartment block. The room was very large, one area with a sofa-bed, tv, fridge, microwave and mugs (bring your own tea/coffee or buy what you need at the shops around the corner), and then an enormous bedroom, and good sized bathroom in a modern colourful style. The staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful, be sure to have a mobile on you so you may contact them if needed as you will not see them during your stay if you are out and about. We had paid for breakfast with them, you get a voucher to take to a local cafe in exchange for tea/coffee, fresh orange juice and the choice of a selection of savoury and sweet things on display. At 3.50 EUR it seemed a good price in a lovely cafe which soon fills up in the morning. Overall for the price this is an excellent place to stay in an ideal spot. It's different to a hotel in that there's no point of contact for instant information, but the tourist office is at the end of the road in the corner of the theatre building if you need to find anything out.
