When it comes to location, this hotel is in situated in the perfect spot. Across the road from bull Ring and right under the castle, 5 minutes walk to Malagueta beach, 15 minutes to city centre. There's great supermarket on the other side of the road, bakery and pharmacy just outside the entrance.
Unfortunately hotel itself isn't that great. Firstly this it was advertised as one with balcony, but only several rooms have them, so make sure when you're booking your room request balcony. Plus pictures on the hotel website are misleading. Our room was very small and dark, it looked like they put extra bed into single room. There was no space to dry your stuff after coming back form the beach. Also there's no bin in the room, we had to use plastic bag that we bought. There's no safe, no hair drier, no kettle, no cups just tiny table, one chair and extra noisy mini fridge. I would recommend you to bring earplugs because hotel is situated just beside very busy road and even with the window closed you can still hear the traffic. Also air conditioning is very loud, moreover we could hear everything from reception because corridors are tiled and sounds spread easily. Internet didn't work in the room for most of the time, but there's one computer at the reception if you need to check something.
In our double room we had set of twin beds, which were on wheels and danced all over the floor. Bear that in mind if you're travelling as a couple.
I would also advise you to skip breakfast. It's served in bar called Flor on the other side of the road and it's not worth the money that we spend on it. We were served two slices of bread with orange juice, jam and butter. You can get the same meal in the near by supermarket for around one Euro.
On the bright side maids were keeping the place clean, towels were changed daily and bed sheets were changed as well.
Staff at reception are very pleasant, but not very helpful.
Also watch out for people who try to give you flowers, two of them approached us just outside hotel entrance. Within one minute we were surrounding by police. The flower guys were pick-pocketers and policeman arrested them and we were informed to avoid anybody who offers us any sort of flowers, so be careful.
