The Reina Christina has a long and distinguished history and some famous guests. Its heyday is long past but now it opens its generous heart to the hoi poloi. Make no mistake, this is a real hotel with a fire in the lobby, beautiful grounds with banana palms, a swimming pool, and a good restaurant. The rooms are a little faded, but I think you can forgive them this in view of their undoubted dignity and lack of ply and plastic. Wifi works and staff are helpful (the night manager printed out a perfect copy of our forgotten car documents, and the maitre d' organized a special vegetarian dish to be prepared for me on a buffet evening). A very good stop-over for the Algeciras ferry port, but I think I would consider this hotel for a few days break in the sun, reading, writing, maybe a visit to Gibralter. Good deal on prices when business is quiet. The restaurant seems to be used by local people as well as residents - has to be a good sign. Breakfast buffet one of the best we've met. Location - excellent in its own grounds, Algeciras is what it is.
