I loved the atmosphere in this hotel and didn't find it all dusty or spooky and I am easily spooked! I was amazed that such an intricate building with so many paintings, rugs, artefacts and books was practically dust free and our room was spotless. There is a lot of dark wood but that was what I expected in a building of this age in Spain. The garden is a delight, especially at this time of year although see below for pool problems.
As others have said it is difficult to find but once you're there that's what makes it so special.
We did have a couple of problems. We couldn't make phone contact with the hotel when we arrived and there was no one there to let us in. We waited a long time and eventually hammered on the back door to rouse a member of staff. The swimming pool was full of stagnant water. It was emptied while we were there but that left some quite smelly debris.
Even so, I would definitely recommend a stay here.
