“Manuel is the man to stay with”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Last year we stayed at the hotel Barrameda and was very pleased but because of the high score we decided to try the Hostal Alcoba and it was with no regrets. Manuel the owner is a delight just the right balance of friendliness and helpfulness, whilst leaving you free to enjoy your holiday to the full. We stayed in room 6 for 7 nights and we could have stayed longer, everything in the Alcoba is of the highest standard, cleanliness, décor, ambience, breakfast (well worth the 6€ each). I agree with all the other positive reviews and would not hesitate to recommend the Hostal Alcoba to anyone who is discerning.

Room Tip: I don`t think there are any bad ones

This place really is exceptional, and it is due to two things that you would not expect at the price we paid (approx €50/nite):
1. The design and finish of the hotel is absolutely top notch. The attention to detail is top notch and everything works beautifully and is fantastically designed.
2. The service provided by the wonderful Miguel and his family is second to none. From when we arrived and he showed us to the car park. Then in the hotel he showed us two rooms and invited us to choose which one we wanted. He sat down with us on our first day and showed us all the best places to eat and visit in Sanlucar and then did the same when we went to Cadiz.
So, in summary: a wonderful place that you really could not beat for twice the price. I promise you you won't be disappointed.

I chose this hotel for a weekend getaway, we live in a town nearby. We wanted a place close to the center of town so we could park and walk and not worry about driving to explore more than the market which we visit often for fresh fruit, veggies and seafood. If you go to Sanlucar this is a must see attraction.
The owner's son greeted us at the door and directed me to their parking spaces just up the narrow street. His English was excellent and tolerated my Spanish with grace.
The hotel is divided into two sections. The first half contains reception and the breakfast area plus the owner's quarters. The other half contains all guest rooms. Walking from the lobby to the rooms you cross a lovely courtyard which has an inviting pool, deck area for sunning, furniture for lounging and a hammock for just hanging out and they featured an art display from a local artist throughout the hotel.
The sleeping area of the room was small but clean and very modern. The bathroom was large with a grand shower stall. WiFi is available everywhere in the hotel. The amenities were sufficient and of good quality. The bed firm and very comfortable.
Breakfast, 3,00€ for the continental and 6,00€ for the full buffet, was very good and contained the typical Spanish offerings, meat, cheeses, breads fruit, cereal etc. The full buffet included freshly squeezed OJ which makes the extra cost worth it.
The best way for me to rate this establishment is to ask would I return and recommend it, without a doubt, YES.

A couple from the UK, we stayed at Hostal Alcoba in late July of this year and it was absolutely lovely. Slightly hidden away down a small side street, on approach it doesn't look like anything special at all. However, inside it is beautiful, modern yet warm and has bags of modern Spanish arty-style. The rooms are modern and clean, with a great walk in shower and free bath products, v.comfortable bathrobe and slippers.
The family who run the hotel are very friendly and accommodating, and are always around to help in any way. Would highly recommend Hostal Alcoba, it is a fantastic place to stay, not to mention very reasonably priced. It is also very close to the main square of Sanlucar (but far away to not be noisy), and prob around 10-15 mins walk to the beach.
Sanlucar itself was a delight, a pretty small town, where most people gather in the main square in the evenings. The tapas were amazing, with seafood obviously taking centre stage: would especially recommend the langoustines and tortillitas de camarones, which is like a little shrimp fritter/omelette and is delicious. There are lots of Spanish tourists there, but it is still very authentically Spanish: In the whole time we were there I didn't hear anyone else speaking English, which we liked.

The only thing which could have improved the Hostal Alcoba for us would be if the rooms had had a safe, as we prefer to be able to lock away our passports and money. But that was literally the only thing we missed during our stay.

Stayed here with my wife for a couple of nights & absolutely loved the place. Everything is very well thought out, and manages to be bright & modern as well as feeling intimate & comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious and the hosts a great source of information on the surrounding area. We pre-arranged parking with the hotel & this worked out really easy, (park along the road in their signed parking bays before checking in). If I am in this area again I will stay here again without hesitation, highly recommended.

If you visit Spain, visit Andalusia. If you are in Andalusia, go to the Province of Cadiz. When you are in the Province of Cadiz, make sure to visit Sanlucar de Barrameda. In Sanlucar de Barrameda, you should definitely stay at hostal Alcoba. Precioso y gente muy amable!!!

We actually thought this hotel was in cadiz city when we booked it but it ended up to be in a small town called Sanlucar. First of all, the town is very quaint with a beautiful seawall. My wife and I jogged around town and along the beach without running into a lot of tourists. The town has that laid back feel, something we needed during a busy holiday.

The hotel itself was designed beautifully. You can tell a lot of thought was put into this place including the many areas you can lie down and chill, down to the light switches in the room. I think of the 7 hotels we stayed at during out vacation, we took the most photos at this place because the design was so modern and contemporary. You would never suspect this looking at it from the outside. This is a real hidden gem in a small town.

One tip is to park your car about 80 meters prior to the hotel with a sign that says "hostal alcoba" with a little tow truck symbol. Then after checking in, there is actually a gated parking out further up where you can park your car.
