Booked this guesthouse online, mainly due to the description saying it is a traditional spanish apartment and that all the rooms had access to the balcony/terrace....which they do but not from the actual rooms other than the top 2 most expensive rooms. When we were shown to our room the window looked out on to a wall approx 2 feet from the window. The maid/housekeepers looked very concerned however did not speak English, which yes I should speak Spanish, but this is an international hotel. I was put on the phone to the very terse owner who told me I hadn't booked a room with a balcony and none were available. In the night we put on the aircon- which was very loud and then later on bits of ice started dropping out of it. The following morning the aircon start spraying water across the room, and flooded the floor. I see this problem was reported by someone else on trip advisor so they must have been aware and not fixed it. on the second night me manage to get a room with a view which was lovely however was charged 36 euros for this when on hotels.com this would only have been another 16 euros. The rest of the apt was lovely and the breakfast nice, clean room etc. I would not however recommend the Guesthouse due to the poor way in which we were treated.
