We travelled with our 4 and 2 year old sons.We stayed at the Colegio because my cousin lives there. I was a little worried by the reviews,but I was pleasantly surprised! Our room was huge (3 beds,a desk+bookshelves,very large bathroom with tub)and spotless clean. They gave us their only crib when we asked,and it was in excellent conditions. The Colegio is in a college district,but there is a tram stop in front of it,with frequent connections to the city center. As for the cons,the staff at the reception had difficulty with English.Breakfast is not included(you can pay extra to gain access to the canteen),but there are some cafes on the basement. Undortunately,they are closed during weekends!! Lastly,I read reviews complaining about noise. The rooms are indeed poorly isolated acustically. However, this is a problem only during weekdays, the Colegio is half empty during weekends.
