My husband and I stayed for one night March 2010 in a room on the 3. floor (2. floor in Spain). A double door with a "French" balcony opened up to the plaza and the view of the hill above.
The interior of the hotel is very tastefully done. Our room was very nice (if a little small) but with a large bathroom which I particularly loved - the bathtub, the warm, glowing colours, the choice of tiles and the attention paid to the details.
Everything was new and sparkling clean. The curtains were competely dark (no light shone through). The windows were tight. I always travel with earplugs, but no need here. Even if it was Friday night and a football match in town, we slept like logs.
We found the reception staff helpful and considerate. (A little Spanish goes a long way.)
We had breakfast in the hotel, although not included in our deal. However, we found the food, the service (even if they were nice ladies) and the breakfast bar a bit below the general standard of this hotel. The spacy lobby with its light, the beautiful tables and surroundings would have given the day a perfect start. A point for improvement?
We did not find the lack of parking a problem. You can make a short stop in the plaza in front of the hotel if you wish. Or if you have light luggage, it's just as easy to go directly to the car park in the centre (the hotel offers a discount if you pay the fee in the hotel).
Once you've walked the little distance between the car park and the hotel, you are right in the middle of the sights of Antequera. Maybe with the exception of the Dolmenes (the megalithic monuments) which are probably best reached by other transportation.
After you've climbed the hill to the Alcazaba and the Colegiata church, and enjoyed the sights and the wonderful views, you can relax with a refreshment at the Bodega Escribanos.
To sum up - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the hotel very good value for money.
