“Friendly but location not so good”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We spent 3 nights at Hostal Bark. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the rooms, whilst old, are adequate with good sized ensuite and our room had a huge balcony. Only criticism is location which is 20 minutes walk from train station and old town.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony

Wanted a relatively inexpensive but comfortable stay while my 71 year old mother and I visited my daughter who is spending a semester in Alcala de Henares.

My mom loved the beds. Nice firm (but not too firm) mattresses.

The staff (behind the desk, and bar/restaurant staff) were very polite and helpful. The airlines lost our luggage and they were very accomodating letting us use the phone in the lobby to call to try and get straightened out and took care of our luggage when it was delivered while we were out.

Highly recommend if want a true Spanish experience.

No free extras like shampoo or coffee but nice clean towels, soap and warm water.

We stayed in Hostal Bari in late September; this was our stop on the way from Portugal to Barcelona.
The hotel is OK, however there are a number of drawbacks some of which are quite annoying: the rooms are smoking rooms and as we arrived the air was thick from the smell of cigarettes. Also the bed was among the less comfortable ones I experienced lately.
The location is so-so, it's easy to find and reach by car what is a plus, it's in an alley with car stores, some 2 km from the historic centre which is normally a 15 minute walk but the town 'ambience' discouraged us from going anywhere actually (this might be a misleading statement but we simply didn't feel too safe there).
On the bright side the service was fine with this hint of old-style elegance that's got forgotten in the meantime. There is also a free parking, WiFi and a restaurant but we didn't try it.

We booked this hostal with only one or two internet comments. It is true that it is in 'car alley' in Alcala de Henares but it is very easy to find and has free parking in its own car park in the grounds - perfect for us en route from Santander ferry port to Murcia, It is only10 minutes away on foot to the centre of town and Alcala's best and most picturesque buildings. With a bar and restaurant (and daily) menu it suited our needs very well --- and the staff could not have been more attentive to my then accident damaged husband. All in all a fab stay over...and one we will repeat without hesitation

Elizabeth

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the car park-very quiet
