We spent 2 nights at the Astoria whilst Christmas shopping in Las Palmas. Following reviews on Trip Advisor, we requested a quiet room. We were really pleased with the room we got.... top floor (next door to the bar!) It had been very recently refurbished.... very modern, bright & airy, huge, brand new bathroom & a plasma screen TV. The room was spotlessly clean and the linen, towels etc were clean and new. If I had to think of anything to moan about it would be the lack of extra pillows.... nothing else! Lovely! The staff were nice & helpful. The bar area, roof terrace, pool & gym were fantastic (so much more than you would expect for a 3*) We stayed on a B&B basis... breakfast was fantastic. Again, much better than most 3*. A huge choice of food which was constantly replenished and attentive staff making sure plates etc were cleared away quickly. Lots of reviews on here moaned about the noise from the road & the 'undesirables' lurking outside the hotel (?!) Las Palmas is a city... a working city - not a tourist resort. Of course there's road noise, bustle & people.... what do you expect?! The Astoria is not central for the 'Old Town' so probably not the best for those wanting to explore the harbour, churches or Triana. It is however fab for Las Arenas shopping centre (Wow!!) and the main shopping street (Las Palmas' answer to Oxford St!) We did struggle to find any restaurants around this area though (the Canarian's tending to opt of 'cafes' rather than restaurants as such) A much better selection around the Old Town & Triana. I should also say, parking in Las Palmas is a total nightmare!! There are lots of multistories dotted about but quite expensive. Canarian drivers are bonkers so be prepared ! We were quite lucky & managed to find on-street parking a few streets away from the hotel. We then left the car for the rest of out stay & scooted about in taxis (cheap & stress-free!) Overall, a fab little hotel right in the midst of the city. A good spot to explore the Island's capital !
