We stayed at Casa Banos for 2 nights. The 'Hotel' has Arab baths in which one session is included in the room price/night. This is a bit of a misconception as really the owners have levied the room price per night (88 euro is ~30 euro over priced) for what is otherwise is just a B+B (minus a decent breakfast). To put it into perspective we paid the same price per night for B+B in a 5* hotel in the heart of Cordoba city. It was evident early in our stay thet we were not happy and it seemed the girl on reception at the time prefered to ignore our issues rather than improving our experience. The room (Aroma) was adequate in size, clean and had average accessories, a safe but no minibar, we had twin beds despite requesting a double. The rooms were very noisy and there was constant noises from the wooden stairs and wooden floors from the rooms above. The pipes were unacceptably noisy particularly, when the guests above went to the toilet it felt like somebody was relieving themselves on top of you, quite unpleasant as it happened continually through the night. There was no helpful response from the reception. Our room was positioned beside the automatic coffee machine used for 'breakfast', so from 7am there was a constant racket from guests making coffee and toast. Breakfast was a sad affair, you could see the shock on guests faces. One of the worst breakfasts we have experienced, yogurt, york ham, stale bread-hence the toaster and orange juice-made from concentrate. As with most Andalucian towns, parking is crazy. Although there is free parking at the hotel- granded you need to be fairly skillful at parking. Unfortunately, the whole Casa Banos experience was quiet dissappointing for us as the Trip Advisor reviews seemed glowing. Unfortunately we arrived in Preigo during the fiesta (1st-5th September) so the town was deserted-everything had moved 2km to the bottom far end of the town. During the fiesta there was only one restaurant (plus 2 tapas bars Rafi and Rio) in Priego open - La Nuria, which had very good but small selection of food with lovely staff was perfectly located beside the castle and the chapel. Priego is a picturesque small town and was lovely in the evening people watching in the heart of the old town. Casa Banos unfortunately takes advantage of its location in the old town and the lack of availability of other places to stay. However, it has the potential to be really lovely. The roof terrace could be better utilised, the view in the evening of the beautifully hightlighted chapel is beautiful and would be the perfect location to have a lovely glass of good wine in the evening. As a result Casa Banos is lacking any atmosphere -Take note: Hotel Chancilleria in Jerez de la Frontera has it worked out perfectly for same price. We hope the management realises the potential in this difficult market.
