We got a taxi from the train station. We had been advised not to get off the train at the last station but to get the station before that. The taxi ride was necessary but not too expensive. Hostal Sara is between the Plaza Mayor and the University. ie it was very central for all the main sights. It was down a narrow road with a few shops and cafes, bars and eating places. The Hostal is a whole building - with a manned reception and a lift. It was wonderful. The room was very nicely decorated and a decent size. The beds were comfortable. It was clean. There were chairs and a desk, bedside table and wardrobe. There was also a fridge with a bottle of mineral water. There was heating, which was on, as it was cold outside. The bathroom was lovely, decorated with very pretty tiles. It had a full size bath with shower and a bidet. No breakfast was provided but there were places to get it nearby. Our room was not noisy except for a few minutes in the middle of one night when it sounded like the rubbish collection lorry was in action. The staff were just so helpful and nice. I find it hard to make any criticisms at all. Perhaps only one tiny thing - there was an electrical air freshener in the bathroom which produced far too much smell - over powering.
We ate several times at the wonderful Patio Chico which is almost next door.
Instead of Wi - Fi they give you a cable (no charge) and there is a socket in the room to connect to your computer - Lan. It was very easy and gave a very good connection. But perhaps it might not work with an i-pad without a place to plug in the cable!
I would certainly stay here again
