I stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a Christmas weekend away. Because of this the cost played a big role in where I chose to stay and the Vista Alegre is pretty cheap (I paid 96 euros for 2 nights).
The location of the hotel is pretty good - within walking distance of the very pretty 'Casco Viejo' (Old Quarter) and enough buses, trams, metros etc. all near by to travel into the city centre or visit the Guggenheim. Some people might find the surrounding neighbourhood a little intimidating (there is a small commercial centre over the road that has sex shops and some dodgy characters hanging around at night!) but I had no problems.
The hotel staff were all very helpful and I was given a useful map and recommendations on the best places to see and routes to take within 5 minutes of arriving (contrary to some reviews I'd read saying the staff were very unhelpful). The rooms are fine (bearing in mind it's a 2 star hotel) - small-ish but clean and with good heating. Although I had a front room I had no problems with noise. Overall, totally adequate for the cost and purpose.
