The location is wonderful. The hotel is walking distance from everything I wanted to do and see in Melilla. The room was very spacious and clean. The bed was supposed to be a double, but I was given a single one instead. The mattress was very soft so I was quite uncomfortable. I had to sleep with earplugs because there... More

The best bit was the fact the Anfora had rooms when we arrived from Motril after dark, without reservations (had thought boat would have wifi... in addition no mobile signal for most of seven-hour trip). And that they were very clean. And fairly reasonable - 46 euro per room per night, with free wifi and breakfast. Easily walkable from the... More

The hotel is situated at a two minute walk from the center of the city and a quite far from the airport an Benianzar frontier, the one frontier one must utilize to go into Morocco with a passport.

Among the other somewhat critically discussed hotels in Melilla (the Spanish enclave in North Africa) the Anfora Hotel appeared to be at least reasonable in its rates. Sort of true but only sort of. Arriving there I found out from the decent but pitiable guy at the reception desk, who has to convey all the bad messages (in Spanish only,... More

We spent two nights at this hotel and really enjoyed the experience. The room was comfortable and clean, the reception staff pleasant and helpful, and the top floor restaurant had excellent food available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Anfora has a great location in the city and is an easy walk from the ferry port, shops and main park.... More

Arriving at 9pm after a 7hour ferry crossing you do not want to be told that the hotel has no record of you pre-paid booking!With persistence this was sorted, but if you can't speak Spanish you may have difficulties. The hotel itself was clean, functional, with good air-con in the room, but resembled some old Soviet bloc hotels in decor... More
