I stayed one night here in May 2013, and had a pleasant stay. There was however some minor “problems”...
Behind the reception area there is a room where the receptionists seem to spend an awful lot of time. I went down to the reception three times to ask for directions, advices etc, and every time I had to linger around and try to give the receptionist a friendly “signal”. It was all a bit awkward in the end...
Unfortunately you can hear everything in the hotel due to paper thin walls and hard wooden floors. Do not expect to go to sleep early or get up late... It sounded like the room over mine was having a minor earthquake. And the version of “Killing me softly” coming from the bathroom next door will haunt me forever.
The hotel is located quite a bit outside the city center, but in a quiet and new area on the tip of the peninsula. It looks a little run down from the outside, but the room was both modern and nice. The bathroom had a bubble bath, and you could choose pillows from your own preference. Everything seemed clean and well maintained. It was really quiet at night, and possible to sleep with your window open (air-condition did not seem to be turned on properly yet)
Be sure to ask for a room with ocean view. I would also recommend taking the time to walk around the area surrounding the hotel – it is really nice. There is even a small beach right in front of the hotel. It is possible to walk to the city center in about 20 minutes, and the promenade makes it a nice experience with plenty of photo opportunities.
It is possible to buy the breakfast for EUR 7 (in advance) or EUR 9 the following morning. I did not try it. You can park for free right in front of the hotel as well.
Considering the very reasonable price I payed, I would recommend the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The ocean is Galicia and Galicia is the ocean. For this reason a truly Galician night is one with the murmur of the waves breaking on the cliffs and waking with the dazzling reflection of the ocean light and the soft sound of the calm, morning waters. Without any doubt, because of its location and its quality, the Eurostars Ciudad de la Coruna (City of Corunna) is the ideal accommodation for treating oneself to pleasures that are so human, so Galician, so Atlantic. The Eurostars Ciudad de La Coruna is a true oasis in the city. Here, in this secret Corunna courtyard, we have exchanged the streets for a first class collection of sculptures; here, the noise of the city gives way to the sound of the waves: here, the sound of traffic is drowned and the wind peacefully takes its place; here, the hills rise to contemplate how the city falls in love with the ocean and, here, we take off from daily life to submerge ourselves in history contemplating, next to the Eurostars Ciudad de La Coruna, the most ancient lighthouse in the world, erected in Nero's times: the Tower of Hercules. ... more less
