We stayed here one night while transiting from Morrocco to Spain via the ferry. It was easy to get to with a taxi from the border. Then we walked to the ferry the next day. It took about 25 min to walk which is within walking distance for us. They let us drop our bags off since we were early....

The hotel is definitely well situated, right in the middle of the only shopping street in Ceuta both sides and is pedestrianised, you have to find a car park close by and walk to the hotel, once arrived at the building where the hotel was, we had to climb 2 flights of stairs to reach the very small reception, the...

No frills, no lobby but clean rooms with great service at a great price. Triple rooms were not available at a larger local hotel so we gave this a try and would definitely stay again. There was a small fridge in the room, the shower is euro style so no cabin and is hand held but there was plenty of...

Chose this place because it was the cheapest option available for one night during Feria. Clean, small rooms. Good in-room wifi. Comfortable beds. There was no lobby or common area in the hotel. Excellent location in the heart of Ceuta.

Great location, friendly staff, and clean rooms. They didn't have maps of the city but were friendly and eager to print one from the internet. Really hot showers and great water pressure. Close to supermarket and always someone at the front desk. The safe in the room didn't work though...

Great location, you're right next to the museum of Ceuta, staff were friendly and the room was clean, though a window would have been nice. I stayed here for two nights (Fri & Sat) and unfortunately, noise wise, there were bands playing just outside the Teatro Auditorio Revellin, which is just opposite the hostel. On Friday the band started playing...

The accommodation is good value; comfortable bed, clean bathroom, nice and bright. The guys at the front desk were great, lots of good advice on things to do and places to go. Ceuta is a great place for a weekend escape, go kayaking through the walls of the city with Ceuta Kayaks, eat tapas on the port, wander around the...

I was headed to Spain from Morocco, and decided to check out Ceuta. Most people bypass a visit here and go right to the ferry, but I found it quite interesting for a few days. As Ceuta lacks any central area, and some sections feel rather bleak, all I needed was some place that was safe and convenient. Hostal Plaza...

This hotel/hostel is good for a couple of nights. We were there three nights staying on first floor next to reception. Very noisy, from reception, main door and cafe bars. Best to ask for rooms higher up, however no lift so if to tend to pack heavy not a good option as there is 4 flights of stairs to reception....
