“Hotel Coso Viejo comes with lots of 24 Hours Free Parking nearby.”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Hotel Coso Viejo is okay for frequent travellers. Situated in a prime City location and prices are reasonably.

But, avoid the offer of Hotel Car Parking for Ten Euro a day. It is obviously an old stable in this narrow street and you are unable to get your modern size car, in or out or around the place. You are wasting a lot of time and a big risk to your car.

Tip on arrival: Park your car on the pavement opposite the Hotel, unload your luggage and check in. Continue down the Street, turn right at the second street, Callejon de Urbina, and you have a huge 24 hours Free Public Parking Area in front of you only five minutes walking from the Hotel.

Don´t be surprised if you hear a knock on the door as late as 4.00 PM. when you are having a little nap after your sightseeing. A lady will now insist FAR FAR too late in the day to do the beds!

Just ask the lady to go away, and she will immediately call her colleague who is in hiding around the corner. This lady now insists to do the bathroom at the same time. Your wife is now hiding in the bathroom and you are standing amazed in the middle of the room in your swimmers only.

People will say: Oh, that´s Spain! No, it is not Spain, Italy or Morocco! It is just plain stupid, poor management and very unprofessional! Did you say: Fawlty Towers? Enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: Good views from the front. First or second floor. A/C noiseless.

This was a great little hotel right in the center of Antequera. Rooms were pretty basic but nice and so was the breakfast. Overall very good value. I thought the staff members were all extremely friendly and helpful although communicating in English was a bit of a challenge. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed a night at hotel Coso Viejo on our way to Sevilla. We noticed that the receptionist wasn´t in a good mood, when we arrived. The hotel is in the centre of the town, we just crossed the plaza and took the stairs to get to the castle. The hotel was nearly empty, but we got a room right next to the elevator, so we put the bed away from the wall. Our room is good and clean, not so spacious. The patio is really lovely. We booked a parking, but we got the smallest space, difficult to get in with the car and get out of the car haha... The receptionist wasn´t helpful because she said. ¨I have a bigger car and have no problems to park at that spot¨. So after the unfriendly manner of the receptionist, we decided to have our dinner and breakfast in town.

The first impression of the hotel was, the location is good and the reception / breakfast area looks nice. When you pay for a hotel you expect to deal with friendly personnel though and the woman at the reception just was not that friendly. The parking places in the hotel parking are very tight and are better to be avoided. The room was clean, the bathroom quite nice but the view was a wall just across from the window and the mini bar was empty. The relation price / quality was not bad but just because of the personnel I would find another hotel the next time I want to stay in Antequera.

Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

Rooms are very very cosy, I mean small, but adequate. Bathrooms are smart too as was the reception/breakfast area.

The staff were extremely friendly and also helpful in choosing a restaurant but the one outside up the hill 20 yards away is fine!

Now, the reason only 3 stars:

There were a lot of maintenance problems such as blocked sink, no hot water in the sink, leaking toilet & broken window catches. All small but too many to ignore. The staff were very apologetic but I do hope they will fix these.

Insist on a room away from the road, traffic runs all night and the use of the horn appears mandatory. The lovely square across the road is the drop off and pick up point for all coach tours so expect the noise of hustle and bustle almost 24/7. Rear rooms may not have a view but you will not be disturbed as much.

Room Tip: Do not accept a room at the front of the hotel

The Coso Viejo is not plush; neither is it stylish. But it may well offer all a traveller needs in the attractive old town of Antequera. We arrived disgracefully early at 10.00am, but they still found us a room straight away. It was not the last word in comfort, but it was more than adequate. The hotel itself has a lovely tiled internal courtyard, which is where the reception area is and where breakfast is served. Its situation is ideal, as it is set opposite the quiet square where the town museum is. The town's main attractions are all easily accessible from the hotel (the Carmen church and the Alcazaba by foot, the dolmen caves by car). The hotel has, unusually for Spain a spacious car park which, doubly unusually, seemed to be empty when we were there; and it is next door to the Las Hazuelas bar restaurant - indeed, many of the hotel's rooms are above it. This could give some guests concerns about noise, but the food there is very good indeed.

Overlooking a pretty square in Antequera, this hotel has a pleasant inner courtyard and has clean rooms, decorated in a traditional Spanish style.
Unfortunately, the staff are not the friendliest and we had a room which was between the lift and a ventilation shaft going down to the kitchens, which would be best avoided if you are a light sleeper. Also, the beds were not good - a bit wobbly with rather thin mattresses. Breakfast was hit and miss, depending upon the time / how busy it was.

Room Tip: Avoid one against the lift shaft.
