Hotel Viento 10 may have a two star rating but it rivals other hotels with four and five stars for service and style. It is more a guest-house with personalised attention than a hotel. You step through a discreet door into an entry decorated with lilies and perfumed with incense. Located in a section of a restored 15th century hospital the owners have created a tranquil space with an open courtyard. It is paved in tumbled marble cobbled tiles and fitted with white blinds across the ceiling which were open to the morning sun. Our room was a very compact yet relaxed space with good air con. The bathroom had gold painted concrete floor and walls with a feature wall section of restored 14th century rock. The decoration is modern minimalism highlighted by a dramatic Alessi porcelain basin with a distinctly Moroccan influence.
The owner Gerardo personally served breakfast in a small elegant room adjacent to the courtyard. The breakfast consisted of delicious tapas, tostado and conserves, rolls, croissant, yoghurt with molasses, fruit, fresh orange juice, cake and excellent cafe.
The negatives were no fridge in our room, no water provided, one plastic cup, poor lighting with a bed lamp missing a globe. It is obvious when a man designs the lighting in a bathroom because a woman would be conscious of the importance of this area.
Having said this Viento 10 is certainly an outstanding property and the hosts gracious and attentive and we would definitely recommend it to our friends.
