The hotel itself is worthy of the 4 stars, but I'd booked a premium room on the top floor and was told by the receptionist that it was one for the best rooms in the hotel. Well, it was certainly very spacious and apart from the cracks in the wall and the ripped curtains (!) there's not much else I could fault. However, I'd expect more for one of the best rooms in a 4 star + hotel.
The other problem we had was that since it had been cold the week before the air conditioning wasn't connected. When we arrived it was 30º and since the room was on the top floor, we started sweating after walking in the door. About 2 minutes after phoning reception (where they were very apologetic), the maintenance man came up to try and fix it but explained that there was nothing he could do.
Breakfast was great with a very varied selection. I discovered before going that if you join this hotel's 'fidelity club' which is free of charge, you don't have to pay for your partner's breakfst and you can check out up until 4pm if there's availability. However, when you book online, remember to just book the room since if you book B&B, they won't refund the second breakfast.
The location of the hotel was perfect. They haven't got a car park, but if you leave them your keys, they'll park the car for you. However, next door there's an underground car park which costs exactly the same (18€) if you prefer not to give up your keys.
