The reviews are right on target. The grounds are very interesting to walk around. Lots of charm. There was a smell when we first entered the room, flower/chemical from cleaning and underlying musty odor that had me worried. We had a room with windows and that took care of it. I was there during the April fair and we were woken up every hour until about 4 am by people passing by heading home from the party. Pretty sure that is not the norm.
The location was just perfect. Tapas all around and short walk up the hill to the Alcazar.
The breakfast was in the basement with no windows. The food was good but no one mentioned the other room which had the hot food. Seventeen euros for cereal and fruit seemed unbelievable so I finally asked in my broken spanish and that's when I discovered the second room. English often hinders you in spain. Better if you are more fluent in Spanish, especially in the cities. No exception here but we did well enough.
The spa was similar. We could see a heated pool through a basement window and tried to find it. We could not. We did find a spa but the people at the desk did not speak english and my spanish did not suffice. There was no litterature out and we could not go in so still not sure if that heated pool was in there. Too bad, would have been nice and would have paid for a dip. There was a rooftop pool that was not open.
The location and the charm would bring me back to this hotel. I would make sure I got a room with windows.
