Google Map or Streetview this delightful 'boutique' city hotel and it doesn't get more central for an overnight business stay (my case) or a (recommended) weekend pied-a-terre base to explore this exciting, vibrant Spanish city. You need to like crowds because, even in mid-June, the area around here is heaving, at least till midnight, even mid-week.
The room was modern, spotless but very compact (much like an old Spanish flat atmosphere, recreated) with good a/c, an interesting olde city view and adequate mod cons (wifi not tried as corporate hosts made alternate arrangements).
We ate out at the superb Ocaña tapas bar/restaurant in Plaça Reia (recommended, do a preview 'visit' on Streetview) but the hotel staff did a great job with the breakfast buffet (especially clean-up after the hot section collapsed as a guest was helping himself) though we were too early for the eggs-to-order chef on the patio.
It was just a flying visit but I experienced enough to be confident. Recommended. And I'd pay my own way, gladly.
