I arrived at the Hotel directly from the Airport (about a 10 minute drive by Taxi).
The Hotel is right in the middle of the Town, and is very convenient for anyone wanting to walk and see the historic sites in the area (and there are lots of them).
The person at the counter in reception spoke passable English and I had the keycard to my room within a couple of minutes of arriving.
The room was small to medium sized. There was a small-ish bathroom with marble flooring, a toilet, bidet and bath/shower. The “freebies” included a small shampoo bottle, a shower gel and a bar of soap. There was also a shaver and toothbrush. Towels were plentiful and of good quality. In the meter on meter corridor between the bathroom and main room, there was a trouser press on the wall.
In the main room there were 2 average sized single beds pushed together, a long desk with a 32” flat screen LCD TV on it and another meter of table space. The TV only had Spanish stuff on it, with NO English language channels. Under the TV was a fully stocked minibar. The weather was such that I did not touch the thermostat for either heating or cooling so I do not know how well the A\C works.
There was free Wifi, but it was lousy, with slow internet and lots of disconnects. I did not have a cable to see if the plug in internet service was any better.
The wardrobe was good sized, had plenty of hangers in and there was a small digital safe for valuables.
The Windows were pretty new and although the road was directly below me (I was on the 4th floor), I did not hear much road noise. The Curtains were quite new and there were good quality nets behind them.
The bed/pillows were average (comfort). Room noise at night (i.e. from the road/other rooms in the hotel) was average.
The Carpet looked a little dated and there were a couple of cracks on the wall
I went into breakfast on the first morning. I only had Black coffee and an apple….but there was plenty to eat for those that wanted to.
Price was pretty cheap, but this is a town pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
A slightly dated, good 3 star/poor 4 star Hotel in a convenient position in the middle of Valladolid. Not bad, but not fantastic. I would possibly stay there again if in Valladolid, or maybe go for something that has received a better review.
