We booked this hotel based on reviews on trip advisor, having previously always stayed in 3 or 4 star hotels. The hotel far exceeded our expectations of a two star hotel and should definitely be a minimum 3 star compared to other hotels we have stayed at in the past. The hotel is very clean and modern both in the public areas and the bedrooms. Check-in was very quick and in general all the staff in the hotel were helpful and friendly. The entertainment was probably the best that we have ever seen in any hotel. The staff also put on funny little sketches towards the end of each evening, which were enjoyable. As the entertainment was good we stayed in the hotel in the evenings more than we would have normally. We felt that drink prices were good for hotel prices. We couldn’t fault the food in the restaurant, it was very good and the best cooked breakfast we have ever had in a Spanish hotel. There was a microwave available for use if your meal needed warming, however we never needed to use it. You need to hire a TV remote control from reception to be able to operate the TV. This costs 10 euros which is refundable when you checkout. The choice of British TV channels was the best we have ever had, including ITV1, True Movies, CNN and BBC news and two sports channels. There are 5 lifts in the hotel and these naturally could be busier during meal times, however we never experienced any long delays. There is building work on the next road but we found it didn’t affect us despite facing on to it. On the road below just along from the Hotel Castilla there are three bars which are cheap for drinks – 1 euro for a pint and 50cents for tea or coffee. The British bar “Cheap and Cheerful” was very popular. The hotel is in a good location, near to the main bars but far enough away to avoid the noise. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
