Stayed for 2 nights in August with my husband and son ( aged 7). We found it from the motorway fairly easily as it is well signposted and you do not have to travel into the centre to find it (knowing from experience that negotiating the centre of old andalucian cities by car is a nightmare).We had booked the room via expedia but the hotel had no record of the booking; luckily they had a room available & the staff at the desk were very helpful. The room was basic but clean - the ensuite was very nice - lgreat shower with lots of hot water whenever we needed it. However as it was on the ground floor there was noise from coaches arriving in the car park at around midnight on one of the nights we were there. The breakfast was very nice ( the dining area/bar area was very pleasant and clean). We also had lunch there one day- although not all items on the menu were available the food was lovely. The pool was great in the heat of the siesta.The friendly receptionists ordered taxis to the centre of town for us & they always turned up within 5 minutes( costing about 8 euros) and we saw the Riding School( we had booked this in advance), Tio Pepe bodega and the old Alcazar ( including the Camera Obscura which was really excellent and well worth seeing). The archaelogocal museum was closed for refurbishments. Altough there are great tourist attractions, I was glad to be staying away from the centre. Jerez has been badly hit by the recession & a lot of 'hobos' are hanging around the tourist areas - I was a bit nervous at times but it went off ok - you definitely need to keep your wits about you ( even after a couple of glasses of sherry in the Bodega) -there was an edgy feel to the place last August. There was one evening when there was a demonstration in the main square(about the economy) and there were no taxis in the rank on the cathedral side of town so we had to go back to the other taxi rank to get home. Lot of police were arriving down near the shops as we were leaving and the protesters were selling t-shirts and getting people to sign some protest document. If it had just been us, we might have hung around, but as we were travelling with a (tough) 7 year old we thought it better to return to our nice safe hotel.
