We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cantur. The room was lovely.... very modern, clean & spacious. Little things really made our stay - Kettle, tea & coffee, free water (replenished daily), fridge, windows that open (!), 'proper' hair dryer (ladies... it is safe to leave your hairdryer at home!), gel & shampoo dispenser in the shower plus toiletries, room service.....
They also offer smoking rooms (yay!) which in no way effect the quality of the room.
Little moans about the room... single beds (made up with single sheets), not enough pillows, shower only - no bath. We did get a lot of road noise but I think that's to be expected in a big city.
The hotel itself is very nice, with a bar in reception plus roof top bar with pool, jaccuzzi & sun beds. In Summer they have a DJ & BBQ up there.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel & the choice was excellent. Not too busy & easy to negotiate the help-yourself buffet etc. However, after 9.30am there were quite a lot of 'gaps' and we had to ask on a few occasions for the staff to replenish. Also, the hot plate food was stone cold. Shame as other than that it was a good breakfast experience.
The staff were all lovely & very helpful.
As with most hotels in Las Palmas there is NO parking. On street parking is a total nighmare in the city so (expensive as it is) I'd recommend parking in a multi storey car park and leaving your car there for the juration! The Cantur offer a 'deal' with a carpark 2 minutes up the road for 14euros a day.
The hotel is perfectly located for central Las Palmas & 2 minutes from Las Canteras beach with it's bars & restaurants. There are also lots of fast food cafes, tapas bars & icecream bars around the hotel. A 10 minute walk to Cortes Del Ingles etc and one of the big Commercial shopping centres, plus the port and central bus station. Easy taxi ride to Las Arenas (THE biggest & best shopping centre!) and to La Triana in the 'old' town.
Overall a great hotel. Very highly recommended. Value for money depending if you book direct or not......
