We stayed in a room (2nd floor) with one small window facing the front desk. No air circulation - had to use a/c nonstop to get some oxygen going. WiFi had to be hunted down. It was unbearably illusive: unstable and changed its location often. While we requested a room for two (was with my lady friend), we had one bed that was barely enough for one person. I think the staff was genuinely nice but it's really hard to tell since they spoke ONLY Spanish. I believe the hotel ad was extremely embellished. I presume other rooms were pretty decent but our room was never even supposed to be a room (I sure hope so!) - it's too small to even be a shoebox! Not sound proof whatsoever...So-called "in room safe" is actually a tiny safety deposit box at the front desk...The key from it...Let's just say - it's not the safest place where they store it. The hotel doesn't have an elevator so try not to bring big suitcases (like we did) or if you must, bring a muscular man with you (like we did not). My skinny friend and pregnant self had to drag it all ourselves (per advice received from the front desk after we tried to explain our concern about the location of our room). Thank god, one of the other guests staying there had mercy on us so he helped. The hotel is clean and nicely decorated but the parking...gosh. You can't park there! One has to park ways away and HIKE with one’s luggage to the hotel. Or, if you travel by car with somebody else, that person can make an illegal stop (very narrow, one way street) while you can unload the trunk and grab the suitcases. I have been to over 30 countries in my life... but never had such an awful experience like I had with some of the hotels in Spain. Very disappointing: poor customer service, bad Internet connection and people seem to speak/understand just one language. It's hard to accept it when as a tourist you expect the hotels/busy restaurants to train their staff to somewhat understand English (for the record, I am fluent in 3 languages but Spanish was not one of them…English is not my native language either). It would have been a different experience, I suppose, if we all spoke something we all could understand. True, I did not get a vibe that the front desk folks were awful. But they were not wonderful either. Their guests were more helpful and compassionate. I absolutely hated my stay in Alborada.
