We wanted a beach hotel in A Coruña and this was a perfect choice for the location and view. We were there in August for 5 days and 4 nights. Staying there helped me fall in love with the city on this first visit. We were on the 9th floor which was great because at night it was cool and during the day comfortable without air conditioning. Summer in this city is nice with warm days and breezy nights. The beach was a quick walk across the street and my daughter could even watch me and my boy playing on the beach from our hotel room window.
We had two single beds and I slept with my 3 year old grandson, not spacious but okay as neither of us are big people. My adult daughter slept in the other bed. The hotel is not modern but had a comfortable homelike feel to it. My daughter loved it better than the AC and Renaissance hotels we stayed at in Spain, for her the big advantage of free wfi in the room unlike those others clinched it. The room was also bigger than those 4 star hotels we stayed at so my boy did enjoy the freedom of running around in it when playing with his toys.
If you are picky about hotels being fancy or modernized, this is not the hotel for you. The elevators are small but they come quickly and work well. Like most Spanish hotels they provide ironing and laundry service for a fee. You get a refrigerator stocked with drinks to purchase. For a 3 star rated hotel, I found the hotel room and staff service had a 4 star feel for cleanliness, value and service.
The lobby had a homey feel to it and people were doing wifi there too. We do speak Spanish but did hear the staff speak english to others who didn't. The hotel staff was professional, courteous and helpful at all times with suggestions for eating, towels for the beach, use of their safe, directions to stores, banks, drawing on the maps, etc. There was even a train strike one day and the staff looked it up in the paper and the internet to make sure we would not have a problem the next day of our travel. Luckily the strike was over.
We only ate the breakfast buffet one day and I am sorry we didn't try it earlier as it was reasonably priced. It was delicious, had a lot of fresh fruit choices, meats and cheeses (typical Spanish breakfast) and good juice/coffee, essentials for us.
Taxi service was easy, they are in front of the hotel at all times, lined up there. This made it was easy to get around because you cannot just hail a cab from any street but must go to designated taxi stands. We went to Santiago a Compostela for a day and it was an easy cab ride to the train station and then an hour or so train ride to that historic and pilgrimage city.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for family travel and also if you are in the city because of a college visit.
