Hotel Velad
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Velez Blanco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 10, 2014

The hotel is situated on the hill side of the road entering the traditional Spanish village of Vellez Blanco. It is a good looking 3 story Spanish style building with darkish internal decoration. We had booked a night in advance but checking in was very slow. (checking booking on her computer, photo copying passports, etc., etc) Bedrooms were on 1st and 2nd floors with some at front of building with superb panoramic views. From the hotel plan and the hillside immediately behind the hotel any rooms at the rear must have very limited views. We had front room 104 which was at the end of the building. Other front rooms on that floor were numbers 105 to 111. WiFi was available free in the hotel but did not reach our room. It worked OK in the lobby and bar areas. Rooms 104, 107,108, and 111 had slightly larger balconies. Our aircon did not work. When set to Cool it actually heated. Fortunately during our visit the temperatures were not too high, however in summer this would be unacceptable. Our room was smallish, but clean, and the bathroom ok. The room had no chairs and we had to improvise by moving a bed and sitting on a small table to take in the view from the balcony. Completely unimpeded views over the sierras for about 20 miles. The village is long ( about 1 mile) and narrow with some small bars (open but very quiet) and signs to restaurants which appeared to be closed. We did not need to eat in the evening but the bar was almost completely deserted. No bar lists or menus were visible (even in Spanish which we can read). We had coffees which were excellent and cheap. The following morning our included breakfast stretched no further than the usual limited ham tostada and coffee, with no refills offered. Generally the staff were ok but a little uninterested. Again checking out was very slow as the invoice had not been prepared. We really enjoyed the view but the other failings were just too much to allow us to recommend this hotel. We recommend staying at Velez Rubio ( about 4 miles down the road) and visiting Velez Blanco once to enjoy the views.

Room Tip: Must stay in a front room only, preferably with a slightly larger balcony and must have working airc...
