Hotel Sercotel San Jose
Ranked #9 of 15 Hotels in Albacete
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Stayed for 2 nights in Hotel San Jose in July 2013, within walking distance to Albacete city centre, and just round the corner from the many tapas bars in Calle Tejares. Furthermore, there is quite a good and relatively cheap tapas bar just across the street from the hotel, which is quite handy if you want to enjoy a quick cool beer for only 1.50 Euro!.

Hotel staff were extremely nice and most understood and spoke English. We had a room on the 1st floor which was quite spacious and even had a small kitchenette! The air-condition worked well, which was quite important considering the summer heat. The hotel provides free WiFi and the signal was pretty strong and reliable. One drawback of the rooms is that the walls do not appear to be well insulated as it is quite easy to hear what is going on in the room next door.

There was a pretty good selection of cold and warm choices for breakfast, including cereals, yogurts, fruits, bread, scrambled egg, bacon, sausages, hams, cheeses, pastries and cakes. Coffee, tea and juices are also served.

A shopping complex (the Albacentre) is just about 10 minutes walk away from the hotel. Taxi from hotel to train station will only cost about 10 Euro.

I’ve stayed for 4 nights at San Jose Hotel during May 2013. It’s the second time I’ve been to this hotel and it’s a nice place to stay in Albacete. It’s located in the city center, close to the commercial area and park, but not on the main street were it is noisier. The room was spacious, with a small chicken were you could make tea/coffee, a large double bed and 2 large cabinets for cloth, a desk with writing stuff, LCD TV and free internet (Wi-Fi), thou it was a little slow on speed. The room had a large bathroom, covered with a special soft material both on floor and walls with bathroom amenities. The room its equipped with HVAC system for heating/cooling. The top 2 floors of the Hotel are for smokers (4,5 floor). If you are a smoker be aware that top floors are noisier then lower floors because the AC units are located on the roof of the hotel and they do work around the day (I had trouble sleeping during the night because of the AC units noise from the roof). Breakfast is ok, thou the room is small, but comfortable. The restaurant’s personnel is friendly and fast. The desk personnel is another thing. They are friendly and helpful, but with very basic English. So, be patient and take it slow, and talk in basic English. Overall, it was a nice experience and also an affordable one (60 EUR/night, this being an excellent rate for a central Hotel in Albacete).

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower floors are quieter.

I stayed at this hotel while on business trip. Located in the city center this hotel offers a great breakfast with courteous, and a little bit shy, staff. Only drawback is that rooms are not perfectly isolated thus affecting the sleep quality.

Long stay in this hotel with it's sqeaky floors and loud noises in the wee small hours.
No A/C that works and staff with a very minimum of English.
Breakfast same old , and do not cater for tea drinkers (bring your own)

I rate this hotel a somewhere between good and very good - perhaps 3.5 and for me this is a really mixed review - some outstanding good points and some really odd negatives.
Stayed 4 nights here for business . Good location in city center, friendly . Internet is free of charge - still quite rare case in Europe, but slow.
Room was spacious, clean. Small kitchen with all necessary accessories was really nice to have. Sleep quality just perfect. Nicely designed bathroom.
Breakfast was nothing special, crowded small place. Nevertheless hotel was definitely worth 60EUR per night I paid.

Stayed October 2012, travelled alone.

Stayed 2 nights here with family. Good location in city center, friendly stuff. Even hotel manager helped us to load things in the car when we checked out. Internet is free of charge - still quite rare case in Europe.
Room was spacious, clean. Small kitchen with all necessary accessories was indispensable as we had to cook for the baby. Sleep quality just perfect. Nicely designed bathroom.
Breakfast was nothing special, crowded small place, many children and not enough child seats... Nevertheless hotel was definitely worth 70EUR per night we paid. Hotel was a nice start for our vacation in Spain.
