The only fault I could find was the location. It is about 15-20 mins walk to the centre. I hired a bicycle from the hotel (EUR30 for 3 days, the money goes to charity which is nice) so it was not a major issue. Previous reviews said the area was not very nice. If you go south you are in an industrial estate and it is not very pleasant but there is no reason to be going this way after dark so it is irrelevant to the location of the hotel. The hotel is next door to an El Corte Ingles department store with a huge supermarket in the basement. The bus station is about 10 mins walk away.
The hotel is 4 star quality with comfortable spacious rooms which included a kettle. I booked through the website (it was the same price as booking engines) which included a 'free' EUR10 (it was deducted at check-out) a day which I could spend in the bar or restaurant. This was a good idea as it meant there were guests coming in and out of the bar in the evening so it gave a bit of life to the place. Breakfast was fantastic, it included a large selection of meats, fruits, cakes and cheese. As well as their hot/cold buffet they had a small table with food (and wine!) from the region which I thought was a great idea.
Staff were friendly, there was free wifi and a 12 o'clock check-out which all gets the thumbs-up from me. (I have a gauge regarding check-out times, 10 o'clock check-out is mean, 11 o'clock is normal, 12 o'clock is being nice and giving good service). I would definitely stay here again.
