This is not a luxury 5 star hotel but you get what you pay for. Check in staff a bit unfriendly but other reception staff (Jordi?) made up for it. Free wifi for loyalty card holders. Worth joining just for free internet. We were also allowed late check out at 2pm - really useful. Breakfast was included in the price and was standard self service continental breakfast. Vending machines in the lobby rather than minibar in the room.
The hotel is not in the heart of the city but is well connected in terms of the metro. Not a really touristy area and the local restaurants were full of locals rather than tourists. Easy walking distance to the beach. 40 Euros by taxi to the airport.
If you want to spend a weekend in a luxury hotel and use all the hotel facilities like gym, spa, restaurants...etc This is not the place for you. If you want a good value, clean, functional, efficient hotel as a base to sleep so that you can visit the city then this will suit you.
